Kyle Dittmer Published in Climatic Change

Science faculty Kyle Dittmer was published in a special issue of Climatic Change in September 2013. His paper was the culmination of 12 years of research.

According to the publisher, this is the first time a peer-reviewed scientific journal has exclusively devoted an entire edition to climate change and its impacts on indigenous communities across the United States. More than over 50 authors contributed to this issue, representing tribal communities, academia, government agencies and NGOs.

Kyle Dittmer is one of the contributing authors to the special issue. His research focuses on a historical perspective of changing timing and volumes of stream flows on tribal lands throughout the Columbia Basin. He is also a co-author of another paper in this issue that assesses water resources across all the tribal lands of the United States and specific cultural impacts.

The research presented in this issue of Climatic Change supplements the Impacts of Climate Change on Tribal, Indigenous, and Native Lands and Resources chapter in the Third National Climate Assessment, to be released in early 2014. The National Climate Assessment will inform national decision makers on the climate change status and trends throughout the United States.
