Sentinel Monitoring for Climate Change in Long Island Sound

Connecticut Sea Grant

A bi-state workgroup from Connecticut and New York (including the Connecticut and New York Sea Grant Programs, NOAA, EPA, Connecticut DEEP and New York Department of Environmental Conservation) developed a strategy to determine climate change impacts to the Long Island Sound ecosystem. The Sentinel Monitoring for Climate Change Program in Long Island Sound is a multi-disciplinary scientific approach to provide early warning of climate change impacts to Long Island Sound ecosystems and species to facilitate appropriate and timely management decisions and adaptation responses. The goal of this strategy is for sentinel data to provide scientists and managers with the information necessary to prioritize climate change impacts and determine appropriate adaptation strategies.
