Summary:
The research in this volume focuses on identifying and quantifying the major vulnerabilities to climate change in the Midwestern United States. By providing spatially disaggregated information regarding historical, current, and possible future climate within the region, the contributors assess the risks and susceptibility of the critical socioeconomic and environmental systems. Key sectors discussed are agriculture,  Read more...

schema:description"The research in this volume focuses on identifying and quantifying the major vulnerabilities to climate change in the Midwestern United States. By providing spatially disaggregated information regarding historical, current, and possible future climate within the region, the contributors assess the risks and susceptibility of the critical socioeconomic and environmental systems. Key sectors discussed are agriculture, human health, water, energy, and infrastructure, and the vulnerabilities that may be amplified under current climate trajectories. The book also considers the challenges and opportunities to develop local and regional strategies for addressing the risks posed by climate change in the context of developing an integrative policy for the region.--"@en
