Detailed Description

Megan Behnke is a Climate Adaptation Postdoctoral (CAP) fellow with the Alaska Climate Adaptation Science Center. Based out of the University of Alaska Southeast, her research explores how stream chemistry changes under new climate and stream conditions, and how these changes impact valuable fish species like salmon.

Hosted by the USGS Climate Adaptation Science Centers (CASCs), the CAP Fellows Program supports applied research at both national and regional scales. Each regional CASC hosts a postdoctoral scholar to work on a management-relevant project around a central theme, creating a national network of scholars working on similar topics.
