Project Title
Assessing the vulnerabilities of key resources and ecosystem services across future climate scenarios in the Aleutian and Bering Sea Islands region
Description
This project integrates projections from two climate downscaling approaches into a series of future climate scenarios that will be used to assess the vulnerability of resources and ecosystem services within the Aleutian and Bering Sea Islands LCC.

Project Abstract

This project integrates projections from two climate downscaling approaches into a series of future climate scenarios that will be used to assess the vulnerability of resources and ecosystem services within the Aleutian and Bering Sea Islands LCC. It consists of 4 phases: 1) downscaled climate model integration and synthesis, and engagement with key researchers; 2) the development of a set of likely future climate scenarios based on common model projections; 3) an evaluation and synthesis of vulnerabilities of key resources and ecosystem services; and 4) presentation of results and engagement of regional managers and stakeholders in a dialogue about further research and implications. This project will occur as collaboration between the Aleutian and Bering Sea Islands LCC (ABSI LCC), the Alaska Climate Science Center (AK CSC) and the Alaska Ocean Observing System (AOOS).
