Preliminary Study of the Effect of Sea Level Rise on the Resources of the Hayward Shore - California

March 2010

The Hayward Area Shoreline Planning Agency (HASPA) had a preliminary study conducted on the impact of sea-level rise on the resources of the Hayward shoreline, and the actions that could be taken to protect both the wetlands and shoreline development in this area of the San Francisco Bay, California.   Planning of the South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project by the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service addressed the projected change in sea-level within the HASPA planning area to the south of Highway 92.

Oyster River (New Hampshire) Culvert Analysis Project

March 2010

In this project the Piscataqua Region Estuaries Partnership (PREP) performed a vulnerability assessment of the hydrology and drainage system of the Oyster River watershed in southeastern New Hampshire and its capacity to adapt to climate change impacts and increased development. The project used a geographic information system (GIS) based watershed model to identify the road/stream crossing culverts that are vulnerable to failure due to extreme storms with increased precipitation, in combination with development of the watershed.

Climate Change and Mental Health: Uncertainty and Vulnerability for Alaska Natives

April 15, 2010

This bulletin provides an academic review of the mental health effects to Alaskan Natives as a result of climatic changes, including impacts associated with more extreme weather events, sea-level rise, changes to the local environment, and alterations to subsistence resources. Potential responses for mental health providers and communities-at-large are outlined, such as conducting vulnerability assessments, creating post-incident recovery environments, increasing the awareness of mental health effects associated with climate change, and monitoring activities.

Climate Change and Massachusetts Fish and Wildlife Reports

April 2010

In April 2010, the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife (MassWildlife) and Manomet Center for Conservation Sciences published a series of three reports that address the impact of climate change on ecosystems and species. Funded by the Wildlife Conservation Society and the Doris Duke Foundation, the objective was to make "climate-smart" the State's existing State Wildlife Action Plan (SWAP). The SWAP provides a roadmap for the conservation of wildlife and habitat in the state, including 22 critical habitat types and 257 priority animals in need of conservation action.
