MENLO PARK, Calif. — How much will California's climate warm in future decades and what are the greatest vulnerabilities to climate change? On March 27th, USGS Climate Researcher Dan Cayan will explain about how scientists are investigating the way climate change might impact resources that are crucial to the state, including the Sierra Nevada snowpack, California coastal sea levels and the San Francisco Bay and Delta. Find out how climatologists are using earth system physics and computer modeling to develop plausible scenarios of California’s changing climate.
