Climate Change Models & Tools
There is a growing area of science and technology that wetland managers and scientists are using to better understand the impact of climate change. In order to be better prepared for the uncertain impacts of climate change, a variety of models and tools have been developed to better understand and communicate the risks to stakeholders and communities around the world. These models and tools improve our ability to predict potential climate change impacts based on different assumptions about future weather patterns, land use, sea level rise, demographics and other variables. By employing these different variables into a model, resource managers are better able to strategically prioritize goals and actions to protect habitat, water resources, wildlife and more in an uncertain future.
