Upcoming Webinar to Feature New CIG Research | November 16th 1-2 PM PDT

This week’s North Pacific Landscape Conservation Cooperative Science Management Webinar will feature recent research from CIG’s Se-Yeun Lee and NOAA’s Aimee Fullerton. Join Aimee & Se-Yeun to learn more about their recent study which analyzed water temperature for 6,106 km of rivers and evaluated the characteristics of cold-water habitat for Pacific salmon and steelhead.

Water temperature, a key driver of ecological processes in aquatic environments, is expected to warm as a result of climate change, stressing stream biota. Successful climate adaptation strategies will consider changes to spatial patterns in water temperature.

Findings and datasets produced during this project will help resource managers in their quest to protect “sufficiently distributed” thermal refuges for Pacific salmon and steelhead, to identify locations where stream temperature patterns may be least/most responsive to climate change, and actions that will promote future thermal diversity best suited for conserving salmon and other aquatic resources.
