USACE is undertaking its climate change preparedness and resilience planning and implementation in consultation with internal and external experts using the best available — and actionable — climate science and climate change information. This report represents one component of actionable science, in the form of concise and broadly-accessible summaries of the current science with specific attention to USACE missions and operations. Each of the 21 regional reports summarizes observed and projected climate and hydrological patterns cited in reputable peer-reviewed literature and authoritative national and regional reports, and characterizes climate threats to USACE business lines. They also provide context and linkage to other agency resources for climate resilience planning, such as sea level change calculation and coastal risk reduction resources, downscaled climate data for subregions, and watershed vulnerability assessment tools.
