A shift from drought to extreme rainfall drives a stable landslide to catastrophic failure

Nature | February 7th, 2019

Summary

The addition of water on or below the earth’s surface generates changes in stress that can trigger both stable and unstable sliding of landslides and faults.

A spatially comprehensive, hydrometeorological data set for Mexico, the U.S., and Southern Canada 1950–2013

Nature | August 18th, 2015

Summary

A data set of observed daily precipitation, maximum and minimum temperature, gridded to a 1/16° (~6 km) resolution, is described that spans the entire country

A Twenty-First-Century California Observing Network for Monitoring Extreme Weather Events

Journal of Atmospheric and Oceanic Technology, American Meteorological Society | August 27th, 2013

Summary

During Northern Hemisphere winters, the West Coast of North America is battered by extratropical storms. The impact of these storms is of paramount concern to California,

An evaluation of atmospheric rivers over the North Pacific in CMIP5 and their response to warming under RCP 8.5

American Geophysical Union (AGU) | November 13th, 2015

Summary

Landfalling atmospheric rivers over the North Pacific are evaluated in historical (1980–2005) simulations from 28 models participating in the fifth phase of the Couple

ARTMIP-early start comparison of atmospheric river detection tools: how many atmospheric rivers hit northern California’s Russian River watershed?

Climate Dynamics, Springer | September 10th, 2018

Summary

Many atmospheric river detection tools (ARDTs) have now been developed. However, their relative performance is not well documented. This paper compares a diverse set of A

Assessing the climate‐scale variability of atmospheric rivers affecting western North America

American Geophysical Union (AGU) | August 3rd, 2017

Summary

We have created a new seven‐decade‐long catalog of atmospheric river behavior land‐falling upon the west coast of North America. The catalog has been validated agai

Atmospheric Rivers as Drought Busters on the U.S. West Coast

USGS | April 25th, 2013

Summary

Atmospheric rivers (ARs) have, in recent years, been recognized as the cause of the large majority of major floods in rivers all along the U.S. West Coast and as the sour

Atmospheric rivers drive flood damages in the western United States

Science Advances, American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) | December 4th, 2019

Summary

Atmospheric rivers (ARs) are extratropical storms that produce extreme precipitation on the west coasts of the world’s major landmasses. In the United States, ARs caus

Atmospheric rivers impact California's coastal water quality via extreme precipitation

Science of the Total Environment | June 25th, 2019

Summary

Precipitation in California is projected to become more volatile: less frequent but more extreme as global warming pushes midlatitude frontal cyclones further poleward wh

Atmospheric rivers in 20 year weather and climate simulations: A multi-model, global evaluation

American Geophysical Union (AGU) | June 1st, 2017

Summary

Atmospheric rivers (ARs) are narrow, elongated, synoptic jets of water vapor that play importantroles in the global water cycle and meteorological/hydrological extremes.
