Scientists at the Bureau of Reclamation have increased the spatial resolution of the newest climate models to make them more useful for water managers.
Heat from cities can have far-reaching effects, disrupting circulation patterns and changing surface air temperatures thousands of miles away, according to a new study published in Nature Climate Change.
As the climate continues to warm, North American Monsoon precipitation will likely decrease in the early season (June-July) and increase in the late season (September-October), according to a new publication accepted to the Journal of Geophysical Research.
In the period 2021-2040, several regions in the Southwest will experience reduced soil moisture and runoff, according to a recent study published in Nature Climate Change.
Winter precipitation in the Southwest is likely to decrease by about 7.5 percent in the future, according to a new study led by University of Arizona researchers.
Previously rare extreme summer temperatures are occurring more frequently in some regions of the U.S.—especially in the Southwest, the upper tier of the Midwest, and the Atlantic coast—due to climate change, according to a new study in Climatic Change.
New studies both confirm global warming and warn there is little time left to keep warming below 2˚C from pre-industrial levels, the target needed to avert dangerous climate change. Berkeley Earth has submitted four papers for peer review that confirm the amount of warming determined by earlier studies.
