***NEXT WEEK***  Wednesday, September 21, 3:30pm EST



Join us for our first seminar of the new academic year!     Thomas
Bonnot <http://bit.ly/2bEmEgo>, NE CSC Fellow, will be presenting
â??Integrating dynamic landscape population modeling and structured
decision making to guide regional conservation under climate change
<http://bit.ly/2clmZEl>â??.  The Gulf Coastal Plains and Ozarks
Landscape Conservation Cooperative (GCPO) is an important example of
regional collaborations across agency and ownership boundaries to
conserve sustainable landscapes in the face of global change.  But,
their planning is hampered by uncertainty in how species will respond
to conservation actions amidst impacts from landscape and climate
change, especially when those impacts are also uncertain.  Their
efforts are also complicated by the complexities of the planning
decisions, including strategic considerations such as the amount,
configuration, and condition of habitat needed. How can a management
action that is the best for all species be identified when different
species will likely have conflicting responses to each action?  To
address these difficulties, the University of Missouri, U.S. Forest
Service, the Central Hardwoods Joint Venture and the Northeast Climate
Science Center have teamed up with the GCPO to pilot a process that
combines climate, landscape, and population modeling with Structured
Decision Making to overcome uncertainty and reduce the complexity of
management decisions.  Read More >> <http://bit.ly/2clmZEl>

Assessing the Climate Change Impacts on North Americaâ??s First
European Settlement     NE CSC climate scientist and postdoctoral
fellow, Alex Bryan, assisted Colonial National Historic Park with
identifying the climate stressors most relevant to preserving the
Parkâ??s historic resources, and provided a suitable set of climate
model projections to aid in adaptation planning.  Read More>>

New Study Points to Sharp Decline in Sub-Freezing Days     Michael
Rawlins, Affiliated Investigator with NE CSC and Manager of the
Climate Systems Research Center (CSRC) at UMass, Amherst, with Raymond
Bradley, NE CSCâ??s Principal Investigator and Director of the CSRC,
have released a study showing a projected decline in the number of
days that drop below freezing across North America.  Read More >>

New Interactive Tool Looking at Rising Temps in Midwestern Lakes    
This new decision-support tool and interactive website, â??Shifts in
fish habitat under climate changeâ??, visually demonstrates new data
on lake temperature changes and consequential effects on walleye and
largemouth bass populations in Wisconsin. As part of the NE CSC-funded
project, "An Integrated Assessment of Lake and Stream Thermal Habitat
Under Climate Change", led by NE CSC Affiliated Investigator Jordan
Reed of the USGS, this interactive data visualization website makes
the results of a new study more accessible to a non-technical
audience.  Read More >> <http://bit.ly/2cjGoUX>

Great Lakes Adaptation Forum     The line-up of opening day speakers
has been announced and includes the NE CSCâ??s Alex Bryan, Climate
Assessments and Scenario Planning Postdoctoral Fellow with USGS.  Alex
will deliver a talk at the Forum on how NE CSC brings climate science
to partners and stakeholders to make informed decisions toward climate
adaptation. October 5-7, Ann Arbor, MI.    Read More >>
