As the Colorado River Compact is renegotiated, scientists are critically examining historical research on the river’s flow to ensure water users across the western United States and Mexico have the information they need to prepare for a future where drought is the norm.
Snow sleuths: Researchers around the world join forces to investigate missing snow, improve water resources modeling
A single snowflake hadn’t yet fallen when a team of snow researchers descended on a small town in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains this past fall. But that was intentional — they were preparing for the coming winter’s mission to answer a longstanding research question: What happens to snow after it falls?
In order to stay safe and healthy during wildfire smoke events, communities need to understand the health impacts of exposure, know the interventions they can take to mitigate risks, have access to accurate air quality data, and most importantly, have access to clean indoor air. Recent research underscores opportunities to improve smoke readiness across these dimensions.
The Wiki is a web-based platform with many goals, including helping to inform discussions about the next Interim Guidelines on the Colorado River. The site summarizes and shares the most recent Colorado River research, increases visibility of the activities of the research community, and makes accessible important datasets and tools.
Wildfires are increasing in intensity, frequency, and size, decimating ecosystems and devastating communities. As worries about the impacts of wildfires grow, researchers are ramping up efforts to understand wildfires’ water quality repercussions. Studies conducted following the Marshall and Camp fires will help lay the groundwork for future water resiliency efforts and community preparedness.
First come the flood and the mad rush of damages … and then come the more long-lasting adverse impacts continuing far beyond the initial headlines and hand-wringing. In this piece for Yale Climate Connections, Emily Jack-Scott (AGCI) and Sarah Spengeman (Energy Innovation Policy & Technology LLC®) explore the catastrophic consequences of climate events on human health and nutrition, and what can be done to lessen the threats and foster resilience.
In October, Sublimation of Snow project research partners installed a suite of field instruments to fill in data gaps on the poorly understood process of how snow behaves in windy mountain environments.
In this Yale Climate Connections article, AGCI's James Arnott and Energy Innovation Policy & Technology LLC®'s Michelle Solomon explain how adoption of new climate technologies involves "learning curves," which policymakers must account for to accurately estimate the declining future cost of clean energy.
