BASINS Climate Assessment Tool (CAT)

US EPA’s BASINS can be used to assess the coupled effects of climate and land use change, and to guide the development of effective management responses.

Benthic Cover Data

Benthic cover data captures the location, extent, general character, and spatial relationships of biological communities in shallow nearshore areas. These data are useful for conservation planning, marine protected area sighting, and environmental monitoring by serving as a baseline for assessing potential climate change impacts to benthic environments.

Brownfields Area-Wide Planning Grants Program

Funding from Brownfields Area-Wide Planning Grants Program facilitates community involvement in area-wide planning approaches to Brownfields assessment, cleanup, and subsequent reuse.

CanVis

CanVis is a simple software program that allows users to visualize potential impacts of coastal development or climate change (inundation, SLR) allowing conservation planners and stakeholders to better understand the impacts of their decisions.

Climate Change Action in Coastal Habitats: Additional Resources and Websites

Resource list highlighting additional resources from federal agency partners addressing conservation in a changing climate.

Climate Change and Water

The Climate Change and Water website highlights U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) climate change response actions, regional climate impacts, and additional resources to address climate change impacts to water resources.

Climate Change Resource Center

The United States Forest Service’s (USFS) Climate Change Resource Center (CCRC) is a collection of forest management resources. It includes an extensive library, climate change and carbon tools, webinars and short courses by topic area and ecosystem, as well as an introductory webinar for new users.

Climate Ready Estuaries (CRE) Program

Climate Ready Estuaries (CRE) Program works with the National Estuary Programs, and provides relevant resources for the conservation community.

Climate Ready Estuaries Coastal Toolkit

The Climate Ready Estuaries Coastal Toolkit provides resources for estuaries, coastal programs and other organizations that are interested in learning more about climate change impacts and adaptation.

Climate Smart Habitat Conservation

NOAA’s Climate Smart Habitat Conservation website provides information and links on the benefits of incorporating climate change into coastal habitat conservation efforts.
