Climate Change and Sentinel Monitoring Work Group

Purpose

The purpose of the Climate Change and Sentinel Monitoring Work Group (CCSM) is to assist the Long Island Sound Study (LISS) Management Conference in developing, maintaining, and enhancing a dynamic climate change monitoring program for the ecosystems of the Long Island Sound (LIS) and its coastal ecoregions. The CCSM will oversee implementation of a broader dynamic monitoring program to evaluate and make recommendations regarding the scope and magnitude of potential climate change impacts to LISS, and develop adaptive management strategies to address the impacts.
