Climate Change Effects on Stream and River Biological Indicators: A Preliminary Analysis (Final Report)
EPA is announcing the release of a final report titled, Climate Change Effects on Stream and River Biological Indicators: A Preliminary Analysis. The document was prepared by the National Center for Environmental Assessment's Global Climate Research Staff.
This final report is a preliminary assessment that describes how biological indicators are likely to respond to climate change, how well current sampling schemes may detect climate-driven changes, and how likely it is that these sampling schemes will continue to detect impairment.
