Bill Patzert, Climatologist, Division 32, will present:

California’s Drought: Are We In or Out?

“California’s history is written in great droughts,” Patzert says. As of December 2014, the ongoing California drought has turned more serious. Entering our 4th year of below-normal rainfall and snowpack, California faces its most severe drought emergency in decades. How did we get into this drought? Did a much advertised El Nino give us drought relief? How does drought impact the Southern California coastal marine environment? To find out how this story developed this winter, what happened to this drought and how we deal with future droughts, attend this talk!

Frequently Asked Questions:

What is a JPL Story?
An informal talk about a JPL project or series of event, usually giving a personal perspective or reminiscence about the experience.Who are the storytellers?
Any JPL employee that has an interesting story to tell about his or her JPL experience.What is the format of a JPL Story?
We try to keep the program as flexible as possible and include a cross section of storytellers from the JPL community. Stories can take place in the past, present or future; they can be historical or make believe; and they can be light-hearted or serious.What is the purpose of the JPL Story Program?
They’re an effective way to communicate and understand an organization’s culture and can help employees develop a sense of organizational identity. Stories offer an approach different from the more formal lectures, seminars and town halls we have at JPL – they offer another way to be a part of the discussion.Are the stories recorded?
With the storyteller’s permission, we make a videorecording of each story. These are available for viewing from Teresa Bailey, x4-9233, teresa.r.bailey@jpl.nasa.govHow can I participate?
