Climate Change in the Pacific Islands

This website from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service provides a synthesis of climate science in the Pacific Region, including separate pages for the Pacific Northwest and for the Pacific Islands.

For the Pacific Islands, topics covered include: changes in ENSO and ocean circulation patterns, freshwater availability, sea-level rise, coastal inundation, ocean acidification, coral reefs, effects in Hawaii, and the Pacific Islands Climate Change Cooperative.

For both regions, the effects on species and the challenges these present are summarized. Agency actions and additional resources are also available from this site.
