Abstract

This report, prepared by the Climate Change Technical Subcommittee of the central Puget Sound (WA) Regional Water Supply Planning Process, summarizes the peer reviewed literature on the impacts of climate change on water resources, illustrating the extensive literature on the subject dating back to the mid-1980s and noting that snowmelt derived water supplies have been identified as candidates for significant climate change impacts.
