This paper will explore the contribution of the Natural Hazards field to environmental management and Geography while also describing new frameworks, evolved from traditional hazards inquiry into the climate change vulnerability and adaptation field. It will also describe the author’s development of an empirically-based research program to explore adaptation of U.S. water resources management to the uncertainty of climate change and variability in the U.S. at the river basin scale.
