Digital Coast

The Digital Coast is a collaborative effort of organizations committed to providing data and information, tools, and training resources to help address timely coastal issues - including land use, coastal conservation, hazards, marine spatial planning, and climate change. NOAA's Coastal Services Center is maintaining the Digital Coast website which provides access to all the resources being developed and contributed by academic institutions, public and private sector entities.  This curated collection of coastal and ocean data and tools are directed at decision makers, practitioners, and technicians.

Climate Change Tree Atlas

October 26, 2010

The Climate Change Tree Atlas helps determine current and future suitable habitat and distribution of 134 tree species in the Eastern United States based on current climate and projected suitable habitat for the year 2100. The Atlas provides detailed information on environmental characteristics defining these distributions for each species, and can be used to develop large-scale projections of species responses to climate change. By taking current distributions of tree habitat in the U. S.

Minnesota Water Sustainability Framework

January 15, 2011

A result of funding from passage of the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Act in 2008, the Minnesota state legislature directed the University of Minnesota Water Resources Center to construct a 25-year water sustainability framework that describes the primary issues that must be addressed to achieve sustainable water use and recommendations for what the state should do to address those issues.

Adapting to Climate Change in Minnesota - Preliminary Report of the Interagency Climate Adaptation Team

August 2010

In July, 2009, an Interagency Climate Adaptation Team (ICAT) began to explore the potential effects of climate change in Minnesota, and to develop an adaptation plan for the state. This high-level report, the first work product of the team, synthesizes how climate change may affect Minnesota. The report includes an inventory of past, current and proposed state agency adaptation actions for key sectors including: agriculture, energy, health, natural resources, water and transportation.

Regional climate change adaptation strategies for biodiversity conservation in a midcontinental region of North America (Minnesota)

May 7, 2009

Using climate projections from 16 models, this research assesses climate impacts on the biodiversity in a "mid-continental area of North America" (focused on Minnesota). The likely impacts are described, and adaptation options for eight landscape regions within the planning area are proposed, based on a resistance, resilience, and facilitation framework. The research addresses how to adjust Minnesota's conservation practices so the protected areas network continues to support the state's biodiversity facing climate change.

Analysis of Potential Impacts of Climate Change on Wildlife Habitat in the U.S.

October 31, 2008

This report, from the Wildlife Habitat Policy Research Program (WHPRP) and the USFS Rocky Mountain Research Station, was created as guidance for state agencies to effectively factor climate change into their State Wildlife Action Plans (SWAPs). The primary objective of this project was to develop methods and analyses to provide to state wildlife agencies with information on the magnitude of projected impacts of climate change on terrestrial wildlife habitats and viable options for minimizing those impacts.

A Screening Assessment of the Potential Impacts of Climate Change on Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) Mitigation in the Great Lakes and New England Regions

February 2008

This report presents the potential implications of climate change on combined sewer overflow (CSO) mitigation in the Great Lakes and New England Regions. It is not a detailed analysis of individual systems in these regions. The purpose of this assessment was 1) to determine whether the potential implications of climate change on CSOs in these regions warranted further consideration and study, and 2) to evaluate the need for decision support tools and information that would enable combined sewer system (CSS) managers to incorporate the consideration of climate change into their decision making processes.

Climate Change and Great Lakes Water Resources

November 2007

This report, by the National Wildlife Federation, explores impacts to the Great Lakes from climate change, including possible lowering of lake levels, impacts on fisheries and wildlife, changes in Great Lakes shorelines, and reduction of groundwater supplies. The report also focuses on policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to unavoidable impacts on water resources.

Climate Change and Water Quality in the Great Lakes Basin

August 2003

This multi-dimensional report from the Great Lakes Water Quality Board of the International Joint Commission is written for a cross-section of science, business, resource management, and policy experts in the Great Lakes region. Section 2 provides an overview of climate change and variability projections for the region, including air temperature, precipitation, evapotranspiration, water supply, water levels, ice cover, and water quality. Projected impacts are then provided in Section 3 pertaining to the following sectors: human health, ecosystems and biodiversity, agriculture, fish and wildlife, forests, and recreation and tourism.
