This research report is prepared to assist the CIA’s Research Executive Committee in developing recommendations for pricing methodologies and underwriting approaches that incorporate the use of catastrophe model results.

This measure reduces the minimum flow released from Upper Baker Dam from 5, cfs to 0 cfs and increases the flood storage f acre-feet to 85, acrefeet. The - flood control follows what is set in the Water Control Manual. This measure reduces the outflow at the dam for all flood events up to a 75year event and then is similar to -. Salmon are integral to the ecosystem and the culture of the Pacific Northwest. In fact, salmon are considered a "keystone species" by scientists because of the benefits they provide to both aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. They also play an important role in the cultural identity of the coastal Pacific Northwest tribes. Instream flow models link a physical habitat model that predicts flow-related changes in hydraulics to a biological model that predicts the response of fish to altered velocity and depth. With mounting pressure from urbanization and climate change, it is important to quantify and monitor the effects of flow regulation and habitat fragmentation on trait diversity and selection regimes; particularly for at‐risk populations along range margins (Bridle & Vines, ).

  Salmon and steelhead in interior regions, as well as those in Puget Sound, had generally high DPS exposure scores for hydrologic regime due to loss of snowpack in mid- and high-elevation watersheds. Snowpack is already declining in response to warmer winters throughout the western U.S. [ . Alexander MacDuff, Bernard O. Bauer, in Urban Geomorphology, Abstract.
