Title: Salmon vulnerability maps - Effect of Climate Change on Salmon Population Vulnerability
Short Name: Salmon vulnerability maps (Effect of Climate Change on Salmon Population Vulnerability)
Status: In Work
Abstract:

1. Steelhead (Oncorhynchus mykiss) and other Pacific salmon are threatened by unsustainable

levels of harvest, genetic introgression from hatchery stocks and degradation or loss of freshwater

habitat. Projected climate change is expected to further stress salmon through increases

in stream temperatures and altered stream flows.

2. We demonstrate a spatially explicit method for assessing salmon vulnerability to projected

climatic changes (scenario for the years 20302059), applied here to steelhead salmon across

the entire Pacific Northwest (PNW). We considered steelhead exposure to increased temperatures

and more extreme high and low flows during four of their primary freshwater life stages:

adult migration, spawning, incubation and rearing. Steelhead sensitivity to climate change

was estimated on the basis of their regulatory status and the condition of their habitat. We

assessed combinations of exposure and sensitivity to suggest actions that may be most effective

for reducing steelhead vulnerability to climate change.

3. Our relative ranking of locations suggested that steelhead exposure to increases in temperature

will be most widespread in the southern Pacific Northwest, whereas exposure to substantial

flow changes will be most widespread in the interior and northern Pacific Northwest.

There were few locations where we projected that steelhead had both relatively low exposure

and sensitivity to climate change.

4. Synthesis and applications. There are few areas where habitat protection alone is likely to

be sufficient to conserve steelhead under the scenario of climate change considered here.

Instead, our results suggest the need for coordinated, landscape-scale actions that both

increase salmon resilience and ameliorate climate change impacts, such as restoring connectivity

of floodplains and high-elevation habitats.

Have Resources for Management of these Data Been Identified?: No
Approximate Percentage of Budget for these Data Devoted to Data Management: Unknown
Do these Data Comply with the Data Access Directive?: Yes
Is Access to the Data Limited Based on an Approved Waiver?: No
If Distributor (Data Hosting Service) is Needed, Please Indicate: No
Approximate Delay Between Data Collection and Dissemination: Unknown
If Delay is Longer than Latency of Automated Processing, Indicate Under What Authority Data Access is Delayed:

No Delay

Actual or Planned Long-Term Data Archive Location: NCEI-MD

How Will the Data Be Protected from Accidental or Malicious Modification or Deletion Prior to Receipt by the Archive?:

The Northwest Fisheries Science Center facilitates backup and recovery of all data and IT components which are managed by IT Operations through the capture of static (point-in-time) backup data to physical media. Once data is captured to physical media (every 1-3 days), a duplicate is made and routinely (weekly) transported to an offsite archive facility where it is maintained throughout the data's applicable life-cycle.
