September 26th ACCAP webinar

September 22, 2012

Wednesday, September 26, 2012; 10-11am Alaska Local Time
CLIMATE CHANGE AND POTENTIAL IMPACTS ON BRISTOL BAY SOCKEYE SALMON POPULATIONS
Rebecca Aicher, Science and Technology Policy Fellow for the American Association for the Advancement of Science hosted by the U.S. EPA; and Jason Todd & Joe Ebersole, Office of Research and Development, U.S. EPA

Scientific research has shown that climate change has already caused detectable changes to ecosystems throughout Alaska. As warming is predicted to continue, it is likely to lead to changes in marine and freshwater aquatic ecosystems and impact salmon populations in Bristol Bay, Alaska. In order to better predict how salmon will respond to climate change in both freshwater and marine ecosystems, it is crucial to evaluate the current knowledge of how the salmon and ecosystem are responding and identify key gaps in knowledge. This webinar will describe a conceptual model that is used to synthesize results from over 150 peer-reviewed journal articles to describe current trends in salmon populations, responses to climate change, predicted responses to climate change, and research needs in Alaska.
