USGS Scientists at Capitol Hill Roundtable on Extreme Events
On April 12, the USGS, together with the American Fisheries Society (AFS), hosted a roundtable discussion with congressional staff centered on the impacts of extreme weather events like hurricanes, floods, droughts, and wildfires on inland fish. Scientists with the USGS National Climate Adaptation Science Center (NCASC) are investigating how climate-related changes, such as droughts and warming waters, impact inland fish.
