The NPLCC is ready to launch our Conservation Planning Atlas (CPA), a data discovery, visualization, and analytical platform for stakeholders throughout the NPLCC area. We would like to invite you to participate in an upcoming webinar and e-forum to learn more about the CPA and provide immediate feedback on how we can improve this tool. The webinar, led by NPLCC Data Coordinator, Tom Miewald, will take place on Wednesday May 15th from 10am-1130am Pacific Time. Please join us in the launch of this new tool.

Alaska On-line Aquatic Temperature Site Call for Data.

Thursday, April 17, 2014

Do you collect water temperature data?

Many of us are collecting water temperature data as part of our job, for a class project, or through citizen-science groups. Are you interested in seeing whether your data could be used to make climate change predictions for streams and lakes in your area of Alaska? If you are, please contact Marcus Geist at UAA's Alaska Natural Heritage Program to discuss putting your site information into the Alaska On-line Aquatic Temperature Site (AK-OATS).

The AK-OATS is designed to provide a comprehensive inventory of current (and historic, if available) continuous and repeat-sampled monitoring locations across the state. Once compiled, the Alaska Climate Science Center will analyze the database to find locations where enough information is available to do regional climate change analyses of streams and lakes. The compiled information will also help identify where data gaps could be filled in the future.

It's easy to contribute your location information!

Contact: Marcus Geist,, (907)786-6325

The initial compilation of the database will be completed in September 2014. Please share this with others who may be interested!

New Report: Identifying Resource Manager Information Needs for the North Pacific Landscape Conservation Cooperative

Thursday, April 10, 2014

This report showcases results of an NPLCC-funded project and partnership with USGS to identify management information needs for two priority S-TEK Strategy topics: forests and forage fish. Two workshops were held with resource managers to address valued resources, services and goals and how climate change is anticipated to affect them. The workshops also addressed priority vulnerabilities, potential strategies and what information is needed to inform and employee management responses.

The final report details the conclusions of the workshops, listing priority management goals, tools, decisions, and information needs derived from the workshops.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change recently released a newly approved contribution to their Fifth Assessment Report, a report which will be comprised of results from three working group sessions. The second working group convened last month to develop this contribution focused on climate impacts, adaptation, and vulnerability. You can learn more about the full report & new contribution here.

The North Pacific Landscape Conservation Cooperative promotes development, coordination, and dissemination of science to inform landscape level conservation and sustainable resource management in the face of a changing climate and related stressors. Learn more...
