The Norton Bay Climate Change Adaption PlanLast Updated on 2014-07-07 14:48:50Norton Bay Climate Change Plan
Native Alaskan tribal government entities in the Norton Bay Watershed have completed a plan to assist communities to mitigate and adapt to changing weather patterns in Alaska. Climate change which which results in coastal erosion, flooding, extreme fluctuations in river flows, early spring break-up and disrupted access to traditional fishing and hunting sites, impacts the health and welfare of community members. Also, increased stream temperatures combined with altered ice flows, stream bank erosion, and mining and related development threatens to directly impact fishery and wildlife habitat upon which Villages depend for a major portion of their subsistence fishing and hunting.

Research: Warming Stream Temperatures In Rocky Mountains Forcing Range Contractions For Bull Trout
Posted on Friday, June 06, 2014 (PST)
Recent research in western Montana adds to evidence that global warming is likely driving cold-water-loving species such as threatened bull trout into smaller and smaller spaces, according to “Evidence of Climate-Induced Range Contractions in Bull Trout in a Rocky Mountain Watershed, U.S.A.”
“Higher abandonment probabilities at low elevation for bull trout provide initial evidence validating the predictions made by bioclimatic models that bull trout populations will retreat to higher, cooler thermal refuges as water temperatures increase,” according to the article published in the June 4 edition of the scientific journal Plos One.
