Latest Northeast Climate Hub Additions

Improving soil health by increasing cover crops and reducing tillage is a common interest for farmers and agricultural advisors in the Climate Adaptation Fellowship (CAF). As part of the program, farmers assess their vegetable and fruit farms for adaptation…
On the day he took office, President Biden began the process of rejoining the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. Many issues remain on how to best store carbon, reduce greenhouse gases, and adapt to climate change, but climate-smart farming is here to stay.
There’s a lot of discussion about climate change these days and how best to address it. But why so much attention on trees when discussing climate?
Increasing carbon storage as soil organic matter helps to mitigate climate change by removing CO2 from the atmosphere. Organic matter is also an important part of building soil health. Additional organic matter in agricultural systems means they are often…
As farmers confront the challenges of climate change, you may be hearing the term “Climate-Smart Agriculture” brought up more often. But, where did the term “Climate-Smart Agriculture” actually come from?
Rising sea levels and intense storms along the mid-Atlantic and southern New England coast are damaging and killing coastal forests. Studies document signs of stress and dieback, resulting in “ghost forests”.
Take a closer look at how scientists use forest experiments to study forest response to extreme weather events, such as ice storms, drought, and warming. Learn about how these types of events impact northern hardwood forest ecosystems.
The results from a new study in Vermont show how forests can play a significant role in fighting climate change.
For Sylvia Reeves, timing is everything! Sylvia joined NOAA's National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS) as the Regional Drought Information Coordinator for the Northeast Regional Drought Early Warning System (NE-DEWS) at the beginning of the…
Heavy rain events are increasing across the Northeast, which can result in more nutrient leaching on farms. At UMES, researchers are studying permeable reactive barriers. Results from the research will help to determine if this treatment can limit the…
