National Park Service Climate Change Response Program Newsletter

The National Park Service has compiled a 2016 Q2 Climate Change Response Program Newsletter detailing projects relevant to the NC CSC region, including the future ecoogy of Crater Lake in Colorado and scaling climate adaptation in the Northern Great Plains.

Climate Change in Wildlands Book Available

"Climate Change in Wildlands is an important contribution to park managers and scientists facing the daunting challenges of climate change. The authors articulate a strategy informed by science and practical experience, and work closely with park managers to identify threats to resources and options for responding. Climate change may be the biggest challenge the National Park Service has ever faced. This volume will be a critical guide to a second century of park stewardship."

--Jonathan Jarvis, Director, National Park Service

WWA released Evaporative Demand Drought Index (EDDI) Report

The Western Water Assessment recently released a short informational report describing the Evaporative Demand Drought Index (EDDI). EDDI is a drought index that can serve as an indicator of both rapidly evolving “flash” droughts (developing over a few weeks) and sustained droughts (developing over months but lasting up to years).

North Central CSC Hosts Open Science Conference

Last week, the North Central Climate Science Center hosted an Open Science Conference at Colorado State University. More than 100 scientists, researchers, students, and resource managers attended the event, each contributing their unique views on how to move forward with adaptive management in a changing and uncertain climate.
