Climate Change Impacts on Wildlife Webinar

OHSU-CAST-1525

This webinar covers climate change impacts on wildlife, specifically focusing on bird species in the United States.

ABSTRACT:

Climate change in the Great Lakes region and beyond is expected to promote shifts in the ranges and phenology of well-known plant and animal species. These shifts are often a result of changes in the availability of food and shelter, as well as temperature. Knowing more about these potential impacts will help wildlife managers and nature enthusiasts alike to adapt to and potentially mitigate some of the resulting changes in wildlife diversity.

This webinar covers:

- an overview of potential climate change impacts on wildlife
- effects of a changing climate on the phenology of migratory birds
- impacts of shifting climate conditions (such as drought and flooding) on the vulnerability of species of special concern
- climate change effects on Broad-tailed Hummingbirds as a result of shifts in the timing of flowering of their nectar flowers glacier lily, dwarf larkspur, and Indian paintbrush, which they rely on during spring migration

Climate Change and Harmful Algal Blooms in Maumee Bay Webinar

OHSU-CAST-1527

This webinar covers the potential for future algal blooms in Lake Erie’s western basin.

ABSTRACT:

Harmful algal blooms (HABs) are a global problem and have reemerged as a concern in Lake Erie during the last decade. While some have hypothesized HABs in Lake Erie will become more frequent and larger, there are few studies linking predicted climate and watershed models to examine this issue. This talk will describe the methods and results of an ongoing project that links climate models, watershed models and HABs models to predict the frequency and magnitude of HABs through 2099.
This webinar will describe:

Predicted climate for the Maumee Basin through 2099
How climate change is likely to affect river discharge and harmful algal blooms in western Lake Erie
Modeling tools that can help people understand and manage the impacts of extreme weather events and climate change

Webinar: Movement of Climate Change Knowledge Through Social Networks

OHSU-CAST-1524

This 2014 climate webinar provides information on how climate change knowledge moves through social networks.

ABSTRACT:

People learn about climate change from different places, from the events they attend to published works they read or author. And everyone, from climate scientists to the general public, receives and processes climate information differently. This presentation looks at the different ways in which climate information is relayed and how effective those pathways are.

Specifically this webinar will examine:

How climate knowledge changes as it moves through different networks of people
How the change depends on the nature of the social structure through which it moves
How roles people play in the transfer of information relate to where they are located in the social structure
How opportunities for interaction are structured by institutional forces like online forums and large sponsors such as NOAA and the National Science Foundation

Webinar: Climate Change Impacts on Fisheries in Lakes Michigan and Huron

OHSU-CAST-1510

This 2013 climate webinar provides information on how future climate could influence growth and consumption of key fish species in the Great Lakes.

ABSTRACT:

Great Lakes fishery managers and stakeholders have little information regarding how climate change could affect the management of recreationally and commercially important fisheries, which have been valued at more than $7 billion annually. Our research has focused on how climate change could influence fish habitat (including water temperature, ice cover, and water levels), phytoplankton production, and ultimately fish production. Focusing on lakes Michigan and Huron, this webinar will provide information about whether we can detect climate signals in long-term data on fisheries and phytoplankton; preliminary climate (e.g., water temperature, ice cover) forecasts for 2043-2065; and how future climate could influence growth and consumption of key fish species, such as Chinook salmon, lake trout, yellow perch, and lake whitefish. Speaker: David Bunnell, US Geological Services Great Lakes Science Center
