Climate Change in the National Parks of the San Francisco Bay Area, California, USA

Patrick Gonzalez, Ph.D. (National Park Service)

An educator might use this resource to:

learn about how climate change has affected the Bay Area national parks and what climate impacts can be expectd in the future. This National Park Service report by Dr. Patrick Gonzalez covers parks in counties bordering the San Francisco Bay including Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Muir Woods National Monument, Point Reyes National Seashore, John Muir National Historic Site, and the five smaller historical and cultural parks.

Resource type:

Sea of Troubles

UC Davis Bodega Marine Lab and Point Blue Conservation Science

An educator might use this resource to:

learn more about sea level rise, ocean acidification, effects on marine mammals, and other regional climate change impacts on CA's coast from marine scientists from UC Davis Bodega Marine Lab and Point Blue Conservation science; this is a short, 10-minute film made by award-winning independent filmmaker Jason Jaacks and Bay Nature editorial director Eric Simons.

Climate Change: Where Will Our Beaches and Coastal Wetlands Go?

National Park Service

An educator might use this resource to:

learn about the impacts of climate change on the San Francisco Bay, particularly on our coastal nationals parks.

Resource type: Journal article

Colonial Waterbird Program Research Annual Reports

San Francisco Bay Bird Observatory

An educator might use this resource to:

compare peak nest counts for about 70 colonies of egrets, herons, terns, gulls, and cormorants that nest at sites around the Bay Area across time to look for patterns. They can also request mini reports about specific colonies in their areas, which can show changes in breeding timing that can be compared to climate changes. This data has been gathered by about 50 citizen scientists starting from 1981.

Resource type: Research papers and reports

The Climate Report

The Audubon

An educator might use this resource to:

look up birds from their region and see how they're predicted to be affected by climate change, using data gathered by hundreds of thousands of citizen-science observations and sophisticated climate models. In the making of this report, Audubon scientists considered the climate conditions birds need to survive, then mapped where those conditions will be found in the future as the Earth’s climate responds to increased greenhouse gases.

Resource type:

Modeling Bird Distribution Responses to Climate Change

Point Blue Conservation Science

An educator might use this resource to:

learn and teach about how bird distributions may be affected by climate change. Separate visualizations of how climate and vegetation are predicted to change are available as well as bird distributions.

Resource type: Data visualization

Surging Seas Risk Finder

Climate Central

An educator might use this resource to:

search for the tailored local information they need to understand the risks of sea level rise and coastal flooding in their own neighborhoods.

Resource type: Data visualization

Wired Pier Environmental Field Station

Exploratorium

An educator might use this resource to:

interact with live data and current conditions, such a weather, carbon dioxide, and water temperature, taken on Pier 15 and 17 in San Francisco. Educators can also compare and contrast patterns and trends in the archived data. There are "Data Stories" and activities to explore as well.

Resource type: Data visualization, Data

Modeling Sea Level Rise in San Francisco Bay Estuary

U.S. Geological Survey

An educator might use this resource to:

explore maps and model studies of sea level rise scenarios at 12 coastal habitats of the San Francisco Bay Estuary.

Resource type: Data visualization

Climate Change in the North Bay for Residents of Marin, Sonoma, and Napa Counties

North Bay Climate Adaptation Initiative

An educator might use this resource to:

learn about how climate change will impact the lands and waters of the North Bay, as well as what is being done to reduce climate risks.
