Sea-level rise is resulting in chronic erosion on many Hawaiian beaches. Learn about research from the Pacific Islands CSC examining how beaches on the island of Kaua'i might change over the next century, as seas rise.
We're looking back at our most popular Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram posts from 2016 highlighting research from the USGS National Climate Change & Wildlife Science Center (NCCWSC) and the DOI Climate Science Centers (CSCs).
The Climate Science Centers are helping the National Park Service pinpoint the specific impacts of climate change on parks and their cultural and natural resources. Read more about our work at Jamestown.
From retreating glaciers in Alaska to severe drought in the Southwest, climate change is set to dramatically alter our national parks. Here are 10 CSC and NCCWSC projects that provide a snapshot of our work in national parks.
Rates of glacier loss are increasing in Southeast Alaska as temperatures rise. Learn how the Alaska CSC is integrating datasets to quantitatively describe the effects of glacial melting on the Gulf of Alaska's water cycle.
In the expectation that global climate will change steadily in the coming decades, this research project had the goal to obtain a more detailed view of the climatic changes that Hawaiʻi could experience by mid- and late-21st century.
A new publication shows that climate change driven expansion of mangrove forests may bring about both above-ground (more vegetation) and below-ground (more peat) changes to coastal wetland ecosystems in the Southeast U.S.
