    The Art and Science of Atmospheric Rivers and the Changing Hydroclimate of the West - Impacts of Climate Change in California and The West

    The Art and Science of Atmospheric Rivers and the Changing Hydroclimate of the West - Impacts of Climate Change in California and The West

    California's precipitation regime is the most volatile in the country. These large natural swings between drought and extremely rainy years make water resource management in California notoriously difficult. Global climate change is expected to exacerbate the volatility by decreasing the frequency of regional precipitation while increasing its intensity. Join meteorologist Alexander Gershunov to learn about the mechanisms behind these projected changes, their anticipated impacts on California, as well as how art can help convey the science.  Series: "Jeffrey B.
