Winter severity is a key regulator of wildlife in the Great Lakes region. Learn how the Northeast CASC modeled how winter severity in the region might change as temperatures rise, and what these changes mean for wildlife.
Inland fisheries are critical for preventing poverty and ensuring sustainable livelihoods – but their contributions are often overlooked, say USGS National Climate Change and Wildlife Science Center researchers and partners in a new perspective paper.
Undertaking scientific projects that are useful to people - specifically land and natural resource managers - is an important part of Jeremy Littell's work for the Alaska CSC. Learn more about Jeremy and his projects in this Scientist Spotlight.
The economic and environmental health of the Southwest is closely tied to the Colorado River. Learn how researchers with the Southwest CASC discerned the important role that temperature plays in influencing the river's streamflow.
The 2017 hurricane season has heavily impacted many Caribbean countries and coastal U.S. states. Several scientists have joined together to study the impacts of these hurricanes on landscape changes and hydrology.
Check out the October 2017 issue of the Pacific Pandanus newsletter (produced by the Pacific Islands CSC), which digs into two particular extremes many in the Pacific Basin have been facing recently: high temperatures and high seas.
A team of researchers, including two from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, have developed and proposed a new definition of drought that integrates ecological, climatic, hydrological, socioeconomic and cultural dimensions of drought.
Wisconsin's walleye is an economically and culturally important fish in the state. Yet warming temperatures may be threatening this cool-water fish's habitat. Learn about how the Northeast CASC is modeling future walleye habitat in Wisconsin.
