Our communities in the west are vulnerable to wildfire during drought conditions, especially as the impacts of climate change increase. We work to provide adaptation solutions to wildfire hazards.
The potential impacts of drought on communities is clearly visible in the dropping reservoir level at Lake Meade and Lake Powell in the Colorado River basin. We work with municipalities to identify and forecast the magnitude and severity of droughts from a water system perspective.
Irrigation for agriculture is supplied by surface water and groundwater sources, both of which are impacted by drought through different mechanisms. Drought may motivate the leasing of water, sale of cattle, or decision on whether to plant for the season. We provide geospatial solutions to analyze drought impacts while considering future climate change.
Flood hazards present profound risks to both life and property. We combine localized impact data along with cutting-edge forecast models to help communities and business plan for, respond to, and adapt to flood hazards.
Rising sea levels and accelerated coastal erosion due to climate change present major risks to urban coastal areas and infrastructure. We can provide modeling solutions to guide mitigation planning efforts to proactively protect life and property.
Climate change, overfishing, and industrial development are leaving a lasting impact on our world’s fisheries. Sustainable fisheries are a necessity for the next generation populating our coastal communities. Lynker Intel can help guide decision makers in protecting and encouraging growth of this valuable natural resource.
Increased temperatures present our urban population centers with unique challenges. Infrastructure decisions made by previous generations need to be reevaluated and updated to mitigate the effects of climate change. Lynker Intel can help identify problem areas such as heat islands to improve public health and quality of life.
