Project Summary

Salluit is a coastal village located on the shore of Sugluk Inlet in Nunavik, Quebec. The village is situated in a narrow, steep valley, and homes and municipal infrastructure are built on permafrost. Climate warming over the past two decades has led to permafrost degradation, which is predicted to continue into the 21st century. Permafrost degradation has damaged buildings, roads, homes, and embankments in Salluit.

Project Summary

In early 2007, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Center for Sponsored Coastal Ocean Research (CSCOR) invited North Carolina coastal managers and stakeholders to participate in a workshop to identify and discuss the utility of modeling and mapping tools in planning for and mitigating the regional impacts of rising sea levels and increasing storm intensity. The purpose of the workshop was to help scientists design user-friendly tools that will facilitate management planning for the effects of long-term climate changes.

Project Summary

In response to community concerns about the potential impacts of climate change on renewable resources in Labrador, a conference was held to examine the possible future interactions of climate change on renewable resources and set priorities for developing strategies to adapt to potential impacts.

Project Summary

The Mission-Aransas National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR) is located in Aransas Bay northeast of Corpus Christi. The reserve is located in an area where rapid development and increased population growth has exacerbated pollution, habitat loss, habitat degradation, overfishing, invasive species, and coastal hazard threats. The Ecosystem Based Management Tools Project was designed to examine the links between land use strategies and their effects on coastal and marine ecosystems.

Project Summary

Malibu’s 21 miles of coastline include some of the world’s most famous beaches and highly valued coastal property. Sea level rise poses an enormous threat to the sandy beaches of Malibu as well as to the multi-million dollar homes lining the coast. The Malibu Local Coastal Program’s Land Use and Local Implementation Plans aim to ensure the Coastal Act is upheld and the city’s General Plan and other development and planning ordinances comply with the California Coastal Act.

Project Summary

Seabird Island is located in British Columbia, Canada, and is home to a First Nation population. Increased precipitation and snowmelt threaten to flood the community of Seabird Island. To proactively prepare the community for possible flooding, the Seabird Island Emergency Response Team has developed an emergency preparedness plan that was distributed to community members through a door-to- door awareness and educational campaign spearheaded by the local fire department.

Project Summary

The Ecological Effects of Sea Level Rise (EESLR) project in the Florida Panhandle and Coastal Alabama is intended to improve scientific understanding of the factors and scales necessary to evaluate shore zone modification and help develop a predictive tool of ecosystem modification due to sea level rise.

Project Summary

The North Carolina Sea Level Rise (NC SLR) Project is a pilot study intended to improve scientific understanding of the ecological effects of sea level rise and storm surge on North Carolina coastal habitats and develop better models and tools to forecast these effects. Managers and planners were invited to attend a two-day workshop to discuss ways in which the findings from the NC SLR Project could be used to answer management needs and aid decision-making.

Project Summary

The Upper Willamette River Basin of western Oregon borders the Coast Mountain Range to the west and the headwaters of the Cascade Mountains to the east. The Basin encompasses nearly two million acres, 90% of which is forested. Climate change is likely to alter natural systems and resources of the Upper Willamette River Basin, subsequently affecting ecosystem services in the region.
