The National Research Council of the National Adademy of Sciences will convene a committee of experts to provide an assessment of SLR for California.ﾠﾠThe case sutdies will demonstarte how other communities can use these recommendations to assessment impacts and conduct adaptive planning in their region.
Adaptation options for California's natural and managed ecosystems.

This study proposes to use current scientific models on the geographical distribution of species, wildfire and urban growth in future climates to identify vulnerable species, and ecosystems.ﾠﾠThe vulnerability analyses conducted in this study will help to identify strategies to ameliorate the negative effects of climate change and provide adaptation strategies at a regional level.ﾠﾠ
This project proposes to demonstrate the broad mechanisms by which agriculture may react to climate change, along with other simultaneous changes in landscape pressures. The main intent of the project is to provide a science-based exploration tool for scientists, farmers, policymakers and the general public to better understand the complexity of risks and responses to climate change, and to portray adaptation options for increasing agricultural sustainability.
This research program will apply the BioMove model and other tools to climate change assessment at biologically relevant scales. Products of this research will include a network flow analysis for California, showing optimal networks of sites important for conservation of species through multiple time-steps as climate changes. The project will also improve fire modeling.
