Title Anticipating Installation Natural Resource Climate Change Concerns: The Data.
Publication Date Oct 2013
Media Count 80p
Personal Author J. D. Westervelt M. Hiett R. C. Lozar
Abstract The effects of climate change are expected to impact military installations in the Continental United States (CONUS), including Army installations that have large land-based range areas used for testing, training, or maneuvers. Climate change has the potential to affect several management concerns at Army installations. Natural areas may shift on installations and change the costs to maintain training and testing areas. Climate change is likely to increase the management costs for Threatened and Endangered Species (TES) and noxious invasive species (NIS). This document describes a set of climate change data gathered to support a larger project undertaken to determine the thresholds of climatic characteristics of these targeted species. This work describes available climatic data that will show what the major Global Climatic Models (GCMs) predict about those changes, using Fort Bragg, NC as an example.
