UW Climate impacts on aquatic systems

PI: Nathan Mantua
Institution: University of Washington
My current research focuses on climate impacts on ecosystems and society, and the applications of science to resource management.

A significant part of my research has been focused on documenting the human and ecosystem dimensions of climate variability for the Pacific Northwest region. Floods, droughts, snowpack, temperature and streamflow, each of these aspects of climate impact the natural resources of the Pacific Northwest. Since 1995 I~ve been part of the UW~s Climate Impacts Group (http://www.cses.washington.edu/cig) an on-campus interdisciplinary research team that has worked very hard to establish an ongoing dialogue with people in resource industries that might benefit from the "state-of-the art" in climate monitoring and prediction. This project is one of the first of its kind, involving researchers in forestry, fisheries, atmospheric sciences, marine affairs, and hydrology. We are funded by NOAA~s Office of Global Programs as part of the Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (RISA) program.

I'm particularly interested in downloading AR4 outputs for studies of climate change impacts on marine ecosystems, including algal blooms, Pacific salmon, west coast rockfish, and top predators.
