Trends in Flood Magnitude
This figure appears in chapter 3 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. Flooding in local areas can be affected by multiple factors, including land-use change, dams, and diversions of water for use. Most significant are increasing trends for floods in Midwest and Northeast, and a decreasing trend in the Southwest.(Figure source: Peterson et al. 2013e15600d0-290f-44e2-9b58-9ffd295ee6d2).
