Predicting Climate Change and Drought Patterns – New Tools for Water Managers
Learn the latest about climate change and precipitation forecasting at April 19th workshop in San Pedro
California mandates, such as Executive Order B-37-16, require urban water agencies to develop contingency plans for more frequent and severe drought conditions. How can Southern California agencies most effectively do this in the face of uncertainty?
Researchers and climatologists are constantly improving their ability to predict weather patterns such as atmospheric rivers. Participants at the April 19th Paleo Drought Workshop in San Pedro will learn the latest in seasonal and sub-seasonal precipitation forecasting from NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory Researcher Mike Deflorio.
The one-day workshop also will feature Mike Anderson, the state climatologist with California Department of Water Resources (DWR), who will discuss future climate change scenarios. All together, six speakers will provide a wide range of information that can help Southern California water managers prepare for dry conditions and better adapt to climate change.
The workshop is sponsored by the Water Education Foundation and DWR. Registration is $50 and includes coffee, lunch and materials.
