Climate Vulnerability Assessment of the Great Salt Lake on Migration Patterns

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

My research focuses on 2 species of birds that are extremely ecologically reliant on the GSL, and how they respond to climatic shifts at the GSL. In using citizen science data from eBird, I've been able to model the population distributions of these species over the past 20 years, and understand how climate variables, such as precipitation and sea surface temperature, play a role along their migration route in affecting their population counts at the GSL each Spring.
