Preparing for climate change in the Klamath Basin

This report explores how the local communities and natural resources of the Klamath Basin of southern Oregon and northern California are expected to be affected by climate change and identifies approaches to preparing for such changes, while many of the impacts from climate change, such as an increasing average global temperature, rising sea levels, earlier snow melt, loss of snow pack, and changing precipitation patterns and storm frequency, are already becoming apparent.

It presents some climate projections to identify likely changes to natural (aquatic and terrestrial species and habitats), built (infrastructure), economic (agriculture, forestry, business), human (health, education, emergency services), and tribal (resources of cultural and indigenous community importance) systems; and recommends strategies and actions to prepare communities and natural resources for those changes.
