Identifying and Evaluating Refugia from Drought and Climate Change in the Pacific Northwest

Researchers funded by the Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center assessed spring-fed wetlands for hydrologic and ecological resilience to climatic water stress using freely available remote-sensing and climate data. The approach presented in this study could be combined with field-based assessments to help natural resource managers identify clusters of springs that are most likely to be resilient to climate change, to help support climate-aware conservation planning for wildlife and vegetation that depend on spring-fed wetlands.
