Scientific abstract: Climate is a major driver of the geographic distribution and abundance of salmon. Climate change is occurring globally, yet there has been no organized effort to evaluate the potential effects of climate change on salmon and their ecosystems. Sufficient data and expertise exist to conduct such an assessment. Developing and implementing a process to synthesize the data is the critical step toward achieving this evaluation. The Steering Committee for this project provides guidance and oversight for multidisciplinary, collaborative analyses and syntheses of existing data on the potential effects of climate change on Pacific salmon.
