Description
 
Existing models and predictions project serious changes to worldwide hydrologic processes as a result of global climate change. Significant change may threaten National Forest System watersheds that are an important source of water used to support people, economies, and ecosystems. Because watersheds differ greatly in: (1) the values they support, (2) their exposure to climatic changes, and (3) their sensitivity to climatic changes, understanding these differences will help inform the setting of priorities and selection of management approaches. Eleven national forests from throughout the U.S., representing each of the nine Forest Service regions, conducted assessments of potential hydrologic change resulting from ongoing and expected climate warming. The assessments provided management recommendations to anticipate and respond to projected climate-hydrologic changes. All  assessments identified priority areas and management actions to maintain or improve watershed resilience in response to a changing climate. The pilot efforts also identified key principles important to conducting future vulnerability assessments. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
