Modeling the Effects of Climate Change on Fish-bearing Streams in Western Washington

The Jamestown S'Klallam and Port Gamble S’Klallam tribes, and many other tribes in the Pacific Northwest, rely on ESA listed fish species for subsistence as well as cultural and economic practices. PNPTC will employ well validated hydrological numerical modeling methodologies to project streamflow changes in five major fish-bearing streams and their tributaries in the Northwest Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. Results from this study will be made available to tribal leaders and natural resource managers for planning purposes and to assess potential freshwater habitat vulnerability under a variety of plausible climate scenarios.
