This information can also be used with the Adaptation Workbook to help inform natural resource management. This tool describes anticipated climate impacts within the United States, including Alaska and Hawaii. Some sections of the Midwest and Northeast, shown in green, have detailed information about anticipated climate impacts drawn from ecosystem-based vulnerability assessments led by the Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science. Regions, shown in blue, contain summarized information from the National Climate Assessment (2018).
