Climate - Adapting to change

 

By studying the effects of climate change on the Gulf Coastal region's economy, agriculture and energy production, ORNL researchers are addressing key questions posed by the Department of Energy while designing a tool that the scientific community can use to predict how climate change will impact small localized areas elsewhere. Researchers are using information gained from computer modeling to assess the effects of sea level rise, increases in hurricanes, higher temperatures, sporadic droughts and more on individuals living in particular regions of the United States.
