Climate Projections for the Northeastern United States


Publication Date


The following pages contain maps of climate-change projections for the northeastern United States (from Virginia to Maine) based on selected datasets from Hamann and others (2013). All maps show absolute projected changes in climate variables between the baseline period (1981-2010) and the 2050s (2041-2070; left) or the 2080s (2071-2100; right). Future climate projections are based on the Representative Concentration Pathway (RCP) 8.5 emissions scenario (Knutti and Sedlacek, 2012) using an ensemble of 15 Global Circulation Models (GCMs; Hamann and others, 2013). Units are indicated on the color ramp (on right) except for unitless variables.
