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!
