      Global Climate Change: Impacts in the Pacific Northwest and Salish Sea

      Global climate change will bring major changes to the Pacific Northwest, both on the land and in the coastal environment. This presentation by Dr. Richard H. Gammon, University of Washington Professor Emeritus of Chemistry and Oceanography, will summarize these projected impacts, drawing on the published work of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC 2013/2014), the latest National Climate Assessment (2017/2018), and the Climate Impacts Group (CIG) at the University of Washington. Gammon will focus on ocean acidification, sea-level rise, toxic algal blooms, and changes in species diversity, including proliferation of invasive species in the context of the Pacific Northwest. Additional discussion will touch on the implications for agriculture, water resources, snowpack, and forest health.
