Drought in the West—Research and scientific tools for coping with climate change
Lecturer: Climate scientist Julie Kalansky
Date: Monday, May 10
Time: 6:00 p.m. (PT)
In Drought in the West—Research and scientific tools for coping with climate change, climate scientist Julie Kalansky discusses how drought in California and Nevada is a common occurrence, with the attendant water restrictions and threat of severe wildfires bringing the reality of climate change into sharp focus. Future climate projections for the region suggest a trend toward more extremes, including more severe and prolonged drought as well as exceptionally wet years. Join California Nevada Climate Applications (CNAP) program manager Julie Kalansky to learn about the science of drought and how this Scripps-based consortium of institutions works to provide drought tracking and early warning in support of drought preparedness and resilience in the face of a changing climate.
The virtual lecture will be live streamed via Zoom.
