    Brown Bag Seminar: Climate, drought, and change

    California is one of a handful of Mediterranean climates in the world, characterized by hot, dry summers and cool, wet winters.  The state depends on a few big winter storms to provide the runoff needed to satisfy water demands in the summer and fall.  However, the last three years, fewer storms have traveled through, leading …

    Snow surveyors find sparse snowpack as drought retains grip on California

    From the California Department of Water Resources: “Freshly fallen snow from late-arriving storms brightened the scenery but did not end California’s drought.
