Climate Change Impacts in Hawaii: A Summary of Climate Change and its Impacts to Hawaii's Ecosystems and Communities

This report, from Hawaii Sea Grant, is intended to provide a basic summary of the observed and projected changes to Hawaii’s ecosystems and their resulting impacts for Hawaii’s residents.

This webinar will look at the Norton Sound village of Shaktoolik and analyze the serious threats of erosion and flooding resulting from climate change.

USGS Coastal Change Hazards Portal

The U.S. Geological Survey's Coastal Change Hazards portal offers interactive access to coastal change science and data for our nation’s coasts. The portal is designed to aid decision-makers, organizations, or the general public make decisions that involve emergency preparedness, ecosystem restoration, and where and how to develop coastal areas. Anyone interested can explore the interactive portal to find information about historical or future potential storm impacts for a specific coastal area.

This is a collection of five short videos - The Arctic Ice Cap, Sampling the Ice, Arctic Fisheries, Natives Feel Effect and Arctic Energy -- that can be played separately or in sequence. They show how climate change is affecting fishing, native populations and access for the oil and gas industry in the Arctic. The videos include personal reflections by writers Andrew C. Revkin and Simon Romero , scientists and residents about their experience of the impacts of the climate change in the Arctic.

Activity is a Project BudBurst/National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) exploration of eco-climactic domains, as defined by NEON, by investigating characteristics of a specific domain and studying two representative plants in that domain.

This is lesson five of a 9-lesson module. Activity explores the effects of climate change on different parts of the Earth system and on human well-being: polar regions, coral reefs, disease vectors, extreme weather, and biodiversity.

This video provides an excellent summary of the role of the oceans and ocean life and makes the point that despite the important role of life in the oceans, there is still much to be learned about the details of the oceanic biota.

This online course will explore challenges for water management in the Western U.S. both at large and small scales.

Climate-Smart Conservation: Putting Adaption Principles into Practice

This new report by the National Wildlife Federation looks at how climate change is affecting the nation’s wildlife & habitats, & addresses how natural resource managers need to prepare for and adapt to these unprecedented changes.

Climate change in the Great Lakes region & beyond is expected to shift the ranges & phenology of well-known plant & animal species.
