Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment for the Upper Snake River Watershed Tribes

February 2017

The Upper Snake River Tribes include the Burns Paiute Tribe, Fort McDermitt Paiute Shoshone Tribe, Shoshone-Bannock Tribes of the Fort Hall Reservation, and Shoshone-Paiute Tribes of the Duck Valley Reservation that together are represented by the Upper Snake River Tribes (USRT) Foundation. The USRT assessment focused on climate change vulnerabilities of their reservations in the 97,000 acre watershed in the Great Basin region - primarily in Idaho, with reservation lands extending into southwest Oregon and northeastern Nevada.

Climate Change and The Economy: Expected Impacts and Their Implications

October 27, 2009

A series of climate change impact studies was undertaken by researchers at universities around the U.S. to evaluate economic costs related to particular climate-sensitive resources. This publication assembles six of these studies, with a focus on water resources in New Mexico; forests in Tennessee, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming; infrastructure in Alaska; and coastlines in Florida, North Carolina and Texas.

Impacts of Climate Change on Forests of the Northern Rocky Mountains

September 29, 2009

The forests of the northern Rocky Mountains are projected to have severe impacts from climate change. These impacts are summarized in this report in an accessible format intended for distribution to the general public. The study was conducted by the College of Forest Resources at the University of Montana and funded by a grant from the National Commission on Energy Policy, a project of the Bipartisan Policy Center.

Organization

Center for Science in the Earth System (CSES)

The Center for Science in the Earth System (CSES) conducts integrated research on the impacts of climate variability and change on the U. S. Pacific Northwest. CSES combines and integrates expertise in climate dynamics, ecological dynamics, hydrologic dynamics, and institutional and policy analysis for the study of Pacific Northwest climate dynamics and impacts. CSES also researches methodologies for accomplishing climate research, and researches applications of climate information in regional decision-making processes in support of the regional aspects of an eventual Climate Service.

 

 

Organization

CIRMOUNT

The Consortium for Integrated Climate Research in Western Mountains (CIRMOUNT) is a collaborative and interdisciplinary research consortium dedicated to understanding climate variability and effects of climate on western North American mountain ecosystems and resources. Participation is open to all interested scientists and natural resource managers. CIRMOUNT seeks to improve knowledge of high-elevation climate systems and to integrate knowledge of mountain ecosystem response to climate change into natural-resource management and policy.
