Stream Temperature Monitoring Network for Cook Inlet Salmon Streams

This image has been released into the public domain because it contains materials that originally came from the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. No endorsement by licensor implied.

Case Study
Sector Addressed: 
Conservation / Restoration
Summary: 

In 2008, Cook Inletkeeper organized a regional salmon stream monitoring network to assess the range and extent of changes in water temperature throughout the Cook Inlet watershed. This project was initiated after researchers realized that the watershed may be exhibiting greater maximums in temperature relative to historical norms.

Vulnerability of King County, Washington Wastewater Treatment Facilities to Sea Level Rise

Case Study
Sector Addressed: 
Transportation / Infrastructure
Summary: 

Forty of King County’s 77 major wastewater facilities are located adjacent to tidally influenced water bodies. Sea level rise due to thermal expansion and melting glaciers coupled with storm surge could make the low-lying treatment facilities prone to flooding in the future.

Case Study
Sector Addressed: 
Culture/communities
Summary: 

The Miami-Dade Climate Change Advisory Task Force (CCATF) was created in 2006 to review climate change impacts and advise the Board of County Commissioners on priority mitigation and adaptation actions to respond to these impacts. The CCATF is made up of 25 members and seven committees representing different sectors, which are appointed by the Mayor, Commissioners, and County Manager.

Summary: 

The Greater Vancouver Regional District created the Stormwater Interagency Liaison Group (SILG) to develop a coordinated approach to update municipal stormwater management plans. The SILG created a template for municipalities to create watershed-specific Integrated Stormwater Management Plans (ISMPs).

Conservation / Restoration
Transportation / Infrastructure
Summary: 

Coastal Geologic Services (CGS) was contracted by Snohomish County in 2008 to provide restoration feasibility assessments and propose restoration scenarios for Kayak Point County Park in Washington State. Infrastructure at Kayak Point had been damaged by recent winter storms and managers were concerned that sea level rise could alter existing ecosystems.

Impacts of Climate Change on the Coastal Zone of Mexico: An Integrated Ecosystem Approach in the Gulf of Mexico to Support Coastal Zone Management Legislation

Summary: 

The coastal zone of the Gulf and Caribbean coasts of Mexico is extremely vulnerable to climate change impacts. These areas are already threatened by habitat degradation, ecosystem fragmentation, increased development and population growth, and a lack of coastal zone legislation to guide management and protection.

Summary: 

NOAA Fisheries along with stakeholders, fishery management councils, fisheries organizations, and tribes are developing Regional Action Plans (RAPs) to prepare for and respond to climate impacts on marine and coastal resources.

Summary: 

Assateague Island National Seashore is responsible for maintaining and managing access to a recreational beach that is impacted by storms multiple times each year. Maintaining the recreational beach in its present location is unsustainable in the face of continued storms, shoreline erosion, and sea level rise.
