Climate Change in Colorado: A Synthesis to Support Water Resources Management and Adaptation

The Colorado Climate Report is a synthesis of climate change science important for Colorado’s

and runoff. The report summarizes Colorado-specific findings from peer-reviewed regional studies, and presents
new graphics derived from existing datasets. The following are highlights from the Report.
