Title Climate and Land Use Change Impacts on the Endangered Chinook Salmon Populations in the Snohomish River Basin
Creator Palmer, Richard
Subject climate change Oncorhynchus tshawytscha habitat conservation salmon Washington land use change endangered species fisheries law fish and wildlife law fisheries management stream flow limnology hydrobiology streams water temperature sediment transport hydrology water hydrologic models climate models rivers
Description Palmer will provide an initial framework for the inevitable debate over the threat posed by climate change on salmon recovery plans. He will outline the paths of impacts, including stream temperature, low flows, peak flows, sediment transport, and other habitat impacts. He will conclude that restoration efforts offset climate impacts. However, he will warn that planning without climate change may result in an overly optimistic estimate of benefits.
