Applied Research

Antioch’s Center for Climate Preparedness and Community Resilience has been making an impact, working with communities, to contribute to effective local decision-making so that communities become more resilient. Research and public engagement by our faculty and students particularly benefit communities dealing with the challenges of climate change.

Weather: Extreme Trends

Final Project Report
Long-term climate information and forecasts supporting stakeholder-driven adaptation decisions for urban water resources: Stormwater drainage system vulnerability, capacity, and cost, under population growth and climate change. Minnehaha Creek Watershed District, Minnesota – January 31, 2014

Stormwater Management and Climate Change

Managing stormwater under climate uncertainty is a concern in both built-out
communities and those continuing to undergo land use change. In this study, a suite of climate
change scenarios were developed to represent a probable range of change in the 10-year
recurrence interval design storm.

Enhancing Climate Change Adaptation

This paper discusses current opportunities for universities to partner with local governments and NGOs to support local level adaptation to climate change and a proposed ten-stage model which delineates the key stages of a collaborative climate change adaptation process.
