Drought has long shaped the iconic landscapes of the southwestern United States. However, as we learn about the consequences of a hotter and drier future, we will increase our capacity to adapt to these increasingly rapid changes.
The economic and environmental health of the Southwest is closely tied to the Colorado River. Learn how researchers with the Southwest CSC discerned the important role that temperature plays in influencing the river's streamflow.
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 CSC is modeling future walleye habitat in Wisconsin.
The native westslope cutthroat trout has drawn generations of fly-fishers to the remote Flathead River system in western Montana. Learn about the Northwest CSC's research on what warming waters mean for the future of this iconic fish.
Warming waters are already affecting where inland fish across North America reproduce, grow, and where they live. Scientists are working hard to provide needed information to resource managers to help protect the country’s precious fish and habitats.
Warmer waters are threatening some of the most highly sought after fish species across the country.To better visualize the future, scientists are working to understand how changing conditions might affect our country's culture and heritage.
