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.

Great Lakes Adaptation Assessment for Cities (GLAA-C)

2011

Conducted from 2011-2014, the Great Lakes Adaptation Assessment for Cities (GLAA-C) was an Integrated Assessment project supported by the University of Michigan Graham Sustainability Institute, the Kresge Foundation, and in collaboration with Great Lakes Integrated Sciences + Assessments (GLISA). The GLAA-C program was designed to work with cities throughout the Great Lakes region to better understand municipal level climate change impacts. The project also helped develop and implement a variety of adaptation measures throughout the region.

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 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.

Confronting Climate Change in the Great Lakes Region: Impacts on Our Communities and Ecosystems

January 1, 2003

This report released by the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) and the Ecological Society of America examines the potential impacts of climate change upon the various ecosystems of the Great Lakes region. While somewhat dated, it is still highly relevant, and is cited in numerous subsequent impact studies. An updated Executive Summary was also released in 2005, which considered the findings of over 24 additional studies in the region. State summaries are also available on an interactive and comprehensive Union of Concerned Scientists website designed to represent the findings in this report.

Minnesota Climate Adaptation Framework and Menu of Climate Adaptation Strategies

May 2018

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) is working with the organization paleBLUEdot and other agencies to provide assessment services and funding for 23 cities throughout Minnesota to identify climate-vulnerable populations, resilience indicators, and strategies to reduce climate risks. The report includes a climate adaptation Goals for local communities across Minnesota, as well as a comprehensive list of adaptation strategies.   The project initiates the development of adaptation implementation plans for these communities to conserve resources, prioritize cost and benefit balanced strategies, and protect the most vulnerable populations from climate change impacts.
