Predicting the Impact of Climate Change on the US Northeast

PI: John Taylor
Institution: Montclair State University
Additional Investigators: Alejandra Bozzolasco
Abstract:
Forests and other ecosystems of the Mid-Atlantic region of the U.S. are being affected by climate change. Shifts in species composition have already been observed, therefore research on the impacts of climate change and variability on this region's forests and other ecosystems is urgently needed. The study we propose will be focused initially on the effects of long term climate change on forest development and species composition and the coastal zone. We plan to also look at the short-term or immediate impacts of extreme weather events on forest species and forest management practices. In order to predict the effects of long term climate change, we plan to use existing ecological and statistical models to analyze and present possible changes in tree and other species composition using the output of a number of different ocean-atmosphere climate models.
