CEMML’s Climate Adaptation Program (CEMML CAP) engages expertise from a range of CEMML and CSU scientists including ecologists, cultural resource managers, hydrologist, wildlife biologists, and social-ecological systems experts, providing a full range of climate-related services. CEMML CAP has conducted vulnerability assessments based on installation-specific climate projections for over 120 Department of Defense sites around the world. The program has provided subject matter expertise to these assessments into installation natural and cultural resource management planning.

Latest CEMML Stories
CEMML biologists at Fort Johnson, located in west-central Louisiana, are working to change the negative perception that people have about snakes. Education and outreach to both soldiers and the broader community is a key effort in helping to ensure the survival of one of North America’s rarest snake species, the Louisiana pinesnake.
In June, CEMML biologist Chris Melder was featured in Thrive Magazine. The “cool jobs” article highlighted Melder’s work involving the conservation of endangered species including the Red-cockaded Woodpecker and the Louisiana Pine Snake. Based at Fort Johnson (formerly Fort Polk) in west-central Louisiana, part of Melder’s role entails education and outreach in the community, including local schools.
Teaching local residents and children how to take care of their Oʻahu home is the specialty of CEMML’s Angie Arroyo and Kristy Morris. As water programs support staff, they help Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, an Air Force and Navy base, implement its stormwater program. As part of their role, they provide educational programs at local libraries and schools and work with adult volunteer groups.
