About the Marine Biodiversity & Climate Change Inspector
The "Marine Biodiversity and Climate Change" study is one of twelve studies within AGEDI's "Local, National, and Regional Climate Change (LNRCC) Programme. The study assessed the potential impacts and the vulnerability of marine biodiversity and fisheries in the Arabian Gulf under projected climate change.in the mid- and late-21st Century periods. A research team led by William Cheung from the Fisheries Centre at the University of British Columbia carried out the study.
The main objective of the Inspector is to offer comprehensive online access to the outputs of the study, including all maps produced and databases developed in order to help stakeholders and researchers alike to explore the results of the assessment in detail. Over 500 downloadable maps are included in the Marine Biodiversity & Climate Change Inspector, together with the georeferenced datasets underlying these maps.
For a discussion of the underlying methodology, models, data sources, and key assumptions, please see the accompanying technical reports which are accessible from the main Marine Biodiversity & Climate Change page.
