USFS Climate Change Assessment – Alaska Region

The 2010 US Forest Service Climate Change Assessment for Alaska Region report summarizes potential impacts that are likely from predicted climate change in southern Alaska, focusing on the Chugach and Tongass National Forests.

The assessment identifies ongoing collaborative efforts directed at climate change, and suggests some possible responses that the Alaska Region could take to address this challenge. The assessment also identifies the breadth of potential impacts and provides primary sources of information. Although the report focuses on climate change impacts to the Chugach and Tongass National Forests, it includes a section that discusses state and private Forestry and its role in assisting with climate change impacts on forests at the state level is included.
