Trends in Flood Magnitude

Figure 2.21

This figure appears in chapter 2 of the Climate Change Impacts in the United States: The Third National Climate Assessment report.

Trend magnitude (triangle size) and direction (green = increasing trend, brown = decreasing trend) of annual flood magnitude from the 1920s through 2008. Local areas can be affected by land-use change (such as dams). Most significant are the increasing trend for floods in the Midwest and Northeast and the decreasing trend in the Southwest.
