Matthew Beedle - "Glaciers, Streams and Salmon: Will Climate Change Leave the Kitsumkalum River High and Dry?"
From CTLT User on February 8th, 2019
Presentation Date: March 28, 2018 The glaciers at the head of our watersheds are receding as the climate warms. As this icy reservoir dwindles, downstream impacts in the form of warmer stream temperatures and lower flow volumes may have detrimental impacts on salmon. This presentation discusses the big picture of this challenge and recent research on the Kitsumkalum River watershed as a case study. For the past two summers a research partnership that includes Kitsumkalum, UNBC and NWCC has investigated the stream temperatures, glaciers and seasonal snowpack of the Kitsumkalum River watershed. Please join us to hear about this ongoing effort.
