The possible impacts of some potential climate change effects such as sea level rise, changes in tropical cyclone intensity and frequency, and changes in precipitation and temperature on the hydrology, hydraulics, and water management of the Central and Southern Florida Project are examined. The need for flexible, robust, and implementable alternatives is critical to deal with the great uncertainty associated with an issue such as global climate change.
