21st century California drought risk linked to model fidelity of the El Niño teleconnection
21st century California drought risk linked to model fidelity of the El Niño teleconnectionNature Climate and Atmospheric Science | September 3, 2018...Summary
Greenhouse gas-induced climate change is expected to lead to negative hydrological impacts for southwestern North America, including California (CA). This includes a decrease...
A Case Study in Interstate Resource Management: The California-Nevada Water Controversy, 1865-1955
A Case Study in Interstate Resource Management: The California-Nevada Water Controversy, 1865-1955University of California at Davis (UC Davis) | May 1, 1973...Summary

A comparison of the taxonomic and trait structure of macroinvertebrate communities between the riffles and pools of montane headwater streamsHydrobiologica, Springer International Publishing | May 30, 2018...Summary
Macroinvertebrate community taxonomic and trait structure showed consistent differences between riffles and pools across 12 headwater streams in the Sierra Nevada (California) even...
A Path Forward for California’s Freshwater Ecosystems
A Path Forward for California’s Freshwater EcosystemsPublic Policy Institute of California (PPIC) | December 2, 2019...Summary
Californians rely on freshwater ecosystems for many things: water supply, hydropower, recreation, fisheries, flood risk reduction, biodiversity, and more. These ecosystems—and the social,...
Advancing Strategic Land Repurposing and Groundwater Sustainability in California
Advancing Strategic Land Repurposing and Groundwater Sustainability in CaliforniaEnvironmental Defense Fund (EDF) | March 26, 2021...Summary
For decades, California has been on a steady trajectory toward water scarcity, which is now exacerbated by climate change. More frequent and intense droughts and increased...
Agricultural risks from changing snowmelt
Agricultural risks from changing snowmeltNature Climate Change | April 20, 2020...Summary
Snowpack stores cold-season precipitation to meet warm-season water demand. Climate change threatens to disturb this balance by altering the fraction of precipitation falling...
An Assessment of Urban Water Demand Forecasts in California
An Assessment of Urban Water Demand Forecasts in CaliforniaPacific Institute | August 5, 2020...Summary
In California, urban per capita water demand has declined dramatically over the past several decades, driven in part by greater uptake of water-efficient...
Anthropogenic warming impacts on California snowpack during drought
Anthropogenic warming impacts on California snowpack during droughtAmerican Geophysical Union (AGU) | March 15, 2017...Summary
Sierra Nevada climate and snowpack is simulated during the period of extreme drought from 2011 to 2015 and compared to an identical simulation...
Anthropogenic Warming Impacts on Today’s Sierra Nevada Snowpack and Flood Risk
Anthropogenic Warming Impacts on Today’s Sierra Nevada Snowpack and Flood RiskAmerican Geophysical Union (AGU) | June 15, 2018...Summary
This study investigates temperature impacts to snowpack and runoff‐driven flood risk over the Sierra Nevada during the extremely wet year of 2016–2017, which...
