Developing a Southeast Alaska community-based stream temperature monitoring network

Monitoring and Modeling

This project will address the need to better understand the impact that climate change will have on our salmon subsistence resources in southeast Alaska. Working with federal and state agencies, as well as community-based organizations and tribal governments, this project will 1) build a network that supports local organizations in their efforts to collect stream temperature data, and 2) coordinate those efforts so that the data will inform and empower management agencies, researchers, and communities to adapt to changing conditions for fish in the freshwater stages of their lifecycles.
