A GIS Analysis of Climate Change and Snowpack on Columbia Basin Tribal Lands

Salmon and steelhead of the Pacific Northwest are dependent on the delivery of abundant, cool water from seasonal snowmelt to support their migration, spawning, incubation, and rearing. The anthropogenic release of greenhouse gases, which is raising global air temperatures, poses a threat to the...

A Simulation of Water Temperature in the Upper Grande Ronde Basin with Future Climate Change Scenarios

Stream temperature is an important environmental variable for the freshwater stages of salmon and other coldwater fishes.  For this study, we used a water temperature model of the Upper Grande Ronde River basin, an area of ongoing and potential salmon habitat restoration in NE Oregon.  The Heat...

A Stakeholder Project to Model Water Temperature Under Future Climate Scenarios in the Satus and Toppenish Watersheds of the Yakima River Basin in Washington, USA

The goal of this study was to support an assessment of the potential effects of climate change on select natural, social, and economic resources in the Yakima River Basin. A workshop with local stakeholders highlighted the usefulness of projecting climate change impacts on anadromous steelhead...

A ‘Behaviorscape’ Perspective on Stream Fish Ecology and Conservation: Linking Fish Behavior to Riverscapes

Landscape ecology (and its application to rivers and streams: riverine landscapes or riverscapes) provides an expansive depiction of patterns of physical and biological phenomena, yet mechanisms driving those patterns are rarely identified. Behavioral ecology aims to elucidate mechanisms of...

Altered Flood Control, Climate Change, and Rebuilding Pacific Northwest Salmon Stocks

The Columbia basin salmon evolved in an environment of annual high water cycles and fast-moving water--two conditions that the modern hydrosystem has sought to erase. Not only is this detrimental to the salmon's migration, but it is harmful to the surrounding ecosystem that was defined by rivers,...

Behavioral Responses of Pacific Lamprey to Alarm Cues

Pacific lamprey (Entosphenus tridentatus), an anadromous ectoparasite, faces several challenges during adult migration to spawning grounds. Developing methods to address these challenges is critical to the success of ongoing conservation efforts. The challenges are diverse, and include...

Can Stream and Riparian Restoration Offset Climate Change Impacts to Salmon Populations?

Understanding how stream temperature responds to restoration of riparian vegetation and channel morphology in context of future climate change is critical for prioritizing restoration actions and recovering imperiled salmon populations. We used a deterministic water temperature model to investigate...

Changing Streamflow on Columbia Basin Tribal Lands—Climate Change and Salmon

Over the last 100 years, linear trends of tributary streamflow have changed on Columbia River Basin tribal reservations and historical lands ceded by tribes in treaties with the United States. Analysis of independent flow measures (Seasonal Flow Fraction, Center Timing, Spring Flow Onset, High...

Climate Change and Indigenous Peoples in the United States: Impacts, Experiences and Actions

With a long history and deep connection to the Earth’s resources, indigenous peoples have an intimate understanding and ability to observe the impacts linked to climate change. Traditional ecological knowledge and tribal experience play a key role in developing future scientific solutions for...

Climate Change Impacts on the Water Resources of American Indians and Alaska Natives in the U.S.

This paper provides an overview of climate change impacts on tribal water resources and the subsequent cascading effects on the livelihoods and cultures of American Indians and Alaska Natives living on tribal lands in the U.S. A hazards and vulnerability framework for understanding these impacts is...
