Landscape Changes on the Kenai Peninsula

Landscape changes on the Kenai Peninsula:

A) Cumulative loss of mass, meters of water equivalent, of Wolverine Glacier, a representative coastal glacier in the Kenai Mountains, (data from O’Neel et al. 2014, S. O’Neel, USGS unpublished data).

B) Cumulative change in herbaceous wetland area at 11 representative sites, Kenai Lowlands, means ± SE (data from Berg et al. 2009).

C) Frequency of lightning- and human-caused wildfires (area > 40.5 ha) in the Kenai Peninsula Borough (curves represent Poisson regression fits, see Supplemental Information in Schoen et al. 2017 for methods).

D) Increasing footprint of human development within 1 km of the Lower Kenai River (determined from aerial photography, see Supplemental Information in Schoen et al. 2017 for methods).

For more information, please see the following journal article: Schoen et al. 2017. Fisheries. “Future of Pacific Salmon in the Face of Environmental Change: Lessons from One of the World’s Remaining Productive Salmon Regions.”
