A joint effort of the NW Climate Science Center, the North Pacific Landscape Conservation Cooperative, and the Climate Impacts Research Consortium (NOAA RISA).
The Sixth Annual Pacific Northwest (PNW) Climate Science Conference will be held Nov. 4-5, 2015, in Coeur d'Alene, ID! The conference brings together researchers and practitioners to discuss the impacts of climate in the Pacific Northwest.
Researchers modeled projected shifts in vegetation distributions and potential sage-grouse habitat across 23.5 million acres in southeastern Oregon. Results from this study are in a new publication in AIMS Environmental Science.
Climate change is likely to make extreme events like flooding, drought and fire more common. A recently completed NW CSC project aimed to model climatic extremes in ways that would help resource managers understand likely outcomes of climate change.
The Northwest Climate Science Center (NW CSC) is pleased to announce its 2015 Climate Boot Camp, to be held in Pack Forest, Washington, August 16-21.
USGS aquatic ecologist, Jason Dunham recently completed the final report on a Northwest Climate Science Center-funded study to determine how climate-related threats will influence bull trout.
In a new paper in Trends in Ecology & Evolution, researchers discuss the complex nature of the factors influencing genomic variation and evolutionary processes. The authors highlight the need for a more holistic, interdisciplinary perspective.
Tuesday, March 10, 2015 at 12pm PST, Jason Dunham will present his research which aims to elaborate how certain climate-related threats influence bull trout across five western states (OR, WA, ID, MT, NV).
On January 28 at 11am Pacific time, researchers will present results from a project that explored potential effects of climate change and land management on future sage-grouse habitat.
Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell announced today that the Northwest Climate Science Center is awarding more than $1 million for research to guide natural and cultural resource managers in helping wildlife and ecosystems adapt to climate change.
The Northwest Climate Science Center is pleased to announce the release of the NW CSC Annual Report for Fiscal Year 2014! The Annual Report highlights major accomplishments in each of the five NW CSC core service areas.
NW CSC Graduate Fellow, Ronda Strauch, is an author on a new paper that finds that as watersheds in the North Cascades become increasingly dominated by rain rather than snow, fall and winter floods will cause more damage to roads in the region.
In a recent study, members of the Swinomish Indian Tribal Community, the Tsleil-Waututh First Nation and the USGS applied newly developed Indigenous Community Health Indicators to identify climate adaptation priorities for their coastal communities.
