New Product Showcases Implications of Climate Scenarios for Badlands National Park Resource Management
One of the biggest challenges facing resource managers today is not knowing exactly when, where, and how climate change effects will unfold. While scientific models can be used to predict the types of impacts that climate change might have on a landscape, uncertainty remains surrounding factors such as how quickly changes will occur and how specific resources will respond. To plan for this uncertain future, managers have begun to use a tool known as scenario planning. In this approach, climate projections that represent a range of plausible future climate scenarios for a particular area are considered by resource managers. Read more here.
