Figure 6.3

This figure appears in chapter 6 of the The Impacts of Climate Change on Human Health in the United States: A Scientific Assessment report.

This figure compares the geographic distribution of chicken, cattle, and hog and pig densities to the projected change in annual maximum 5-day precipitation totals (2046–2065 compared to 1981–2000, multi-model average using RCP8.5) across the continental United States. Increasing frequency and intensity of precipitation and subsequent increases in runoff are key climate factors that increase the potential for pathogens associated with livestock waste to contaminate water bodies.
