Potential shifts in seasonality in the Northeast and Midwest resulting from climate change The landscapes of the Northeast and Midwest depend on abundant and relatively predictable seasonal water regimes. Human uses of water compete with environmental flows for aquatic species, especially during drought periods. Climate change is predicted to increase temperatures and precipitation variability in the Northeast United States, causing shifts in seasonality.

Historical, predevelopment conditions in the North Central United States, in comparison to the current state, and future trajectory of land and water use This three panel triptych illustrates historical, predevelopment conditions in the North Central United States, in comparison to the current state, and future trajectory of land and water use. Historically, the region adapted and rebounded from droughts, however, with human use and climate change, the resilience of the North Central United States against drought is reaching an unknown state.
