Sea Level Rise Inundation Modeling Using Stormwater Infrastructure, in Norfolk Virginia
Sea level rise due to climate change is accelerating globally. Portions of the east coast of the United States, including the city of Norfolk, Virginia, see rising sees at almost three times the global rate. Sea level rise ...
Nitrogen addition to a mixed pine-broadleaved forest under elevated atmospheric CO2 exacerbates phosphorus and potassium deficiencies
Forests are vital ecosystems because they capture and store carbon from our atmosphere; this is essential for maintaining the balance between carbon uptake and release in the global carbon cycle. However, human activities—mainly ...
Evaluating the Use of Carbon Offsets in IPCC 1.5C Warming Scenarios
The world faces the daunting task of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius. Integrated Assessment Models help us understand pathways to achieve this goal in the most efficient way. In most scenarios where ...
RED WOLF CONSERVATION IN THE FACE OF CLIMATE CHANGE
The critically endangered red wolf is the focus of a long-standing recovery effort. How climate change might affect it is unknown. Sea-level rise will greatly restrict its current habitat site. Several other threats pressure ...
North American tree migration paced by fecundity and recruitment through contrasting mechanisms east and west
Global forest diebacks are the beginnings of change that will be controlled by tree migration, which combines two uncertain processes, tree fecundity and recruitment. Knowledge of how, and where, tree migration can proceed ...
An Evaluation of Black Sea Bass (Centropristis striata) Distribution and Habitat Availability in the Northwest Atlantic Ocean under Climate Change
Fishery scientists are increasingly concerned about the impacts of climate change on marine fisheries and ecosystem health. Many marine species along the Northeast United States continental shelf have shifted spatial distribution ...
Fish in the Face of Climate Change: A ten-year analysis of fisheries conflicts in the Barents Sea
Climate change is shifting fisheries and opening up new routes. Such a phenomenon has the potential to contribute to conflict between users. The Barents Sea region of the Arctic possesses both significant fish resources ...
Examining Local Policy Responses to Changing Hazards in Coastal North Carolina
As climate change increasingly threatens global coastlines, it is key to understand how policymakers are responding on a community scale. Existing research, however, has failed to systematically describe local policy responses ...
