Latest Northeast Climate Hub Additions

Crops and their pollinators are being affected by increasing temperatures. Researchers at West Virginia University are studying the effects and are looking for ways to reduce the impacts of climate change.
Penn State University researchers are studying cropping systems that can make dairy farming more sustainable in the face of a changing climate.
It is too early to say if climate change is modifying the frequency of circulation patterns associated with extreme flooding. However, chapter 9 the U.S. Climate Science Special Report finds high confidence for increases in projected rainfall rates from…
Researchers from the USDA Northeast Climate Hub, Rutgers University, and the University of Vermont, recently asked: what makes climate change curricula for adult learners effective?
Management activities can have a substantial effect on greenhouse gas mitigation that extends beyond the carbon contained within forest ecosystems. Content from the USFS Climate Change Resource Center.
Land management actions on public and private forests and grasslands can be designed to achieve carbon outcomes while meeting other sustainable resource management objectives.
Stream-crossings have a lower risk of failure if designed appropriately for the stream, and with consideration of current and future regional climate conditions. Careful evaluation of structure size considering all of the factors that influence potential…
Climate change will not affect all parts of a watershed in the same way. The local response and vulnerability of a watershed to regional climate changes will be influenced by soils, topography, forest management, and current and past land uses. Adaptation is…
Wildlife managers face the growing challenge of helping wildlife populations and ecosystems respond to climate change. Partners in the Great Lakes region are collaborating to provide tools and guidance to support wildlife managers in designing and…
Climate change is already having substantial effects on natural systems and the benefits they provide. Forest vegetation may face increased risk of moisture deficit and drought as climate change lengthens the growing season.
