The Northeast Climate Hub sought out these land-grant universities as institutions with expertise in conducting research, designing programs based on research findings, and delivering those programs to target audiences. This current study is part of a larger regional needs assessment on behalf of the Northeast Climate Hub. Agriculture in the northeastern United States is

atmospheric winds and in the heat and freshwater fluxes at the ocean surface and from rivers. Therefore, correlations might be expected between the seasonal cycle of sea level and the seasonal cycle of storms. Here we assume that the seasonal cycle is not changing in time. High-frequency processes. A number of processes affect sea level on submonthly time scales. These include synoptic weather and the short period tides. Storm surge associated with tropical and extratropical cyclones has clear and

environmental benefits as well as possible beneficiaries of atmospheric profiles from a 3D mesonet that might soon be integrated into the operational data streams of surface mesonets across the United States. Other aspects of economics related solely to technological sustainability of WxUAS are not addressed here. 2.

decrease in 1 May SWE, visitation advanced by 5.0 days. Increases in total annual flow had a small but significant effect, where a 10% increase in annual Q relative to the long-term mean was associated with a 0.6–1-day delay in visitation. Warmer temperatures were associated with earlier visitation in all seasons, though the effect size was much stronger for spring (MAM) and summer (JJA) temperatures than for fall (SON) and winter (DJF) temperatures.

delay road maintenance work because of health and safety concerns ( Venner and Zamurs 2012 ). Adaptations such as different pavement binders can be used to improve the resiliency and reduce maintenance costs for road surface infrastructure. A recent study by Fletcher et al. (2016) found that for pavement to withstand projected temperature increases into the 2050s, more heat-resistant pavement binders will need to be used across much of Canada. Drought conditions also affect transportation, both

cover area (68%) and changes in the time of snowfall (>80%); this influences water discharge and vegetation composition in the alpine areas. Extreme heat and scorching in summer season were reported by many respondents. Shepherds were especially keen observer of climate change and its impacts. They reported changes in the composition of vegetation in alpine meadows. The respondents of high-altitude villages Kuti and Gunji reported a shift in frequency of precipitation from snowfall to rainfall. Key

survey among farmers by to Hu et al. (2006) and Artikov et al. (2006) . Furthermore, questions to assess numeracy on the subjective numeracy scale as constructed by Fagerlin et al. (2007) were added to the survey. The complete questionnaire is available in the online supplemental material ( section A ). To account for the diversity of natural hazards in a large country like the United States, six hazards were included in the study: flash flooding, river flooding, hurricanes, tornadoes, heat
