Over the past few years, Californians have seen first-hand the
consequences of hotter-than-normal temperatures and a
smaller-than-normal Sierra Nevada snowpack, including
historically low reservoir levels, dying trees, and increased
wildfire risk. You've probably wondered, "If things are like this
now, what will they be like in the future, as the climate
continues to change?"

UCLA Professor Alex Hall and his research team have set out to
understand future impacts of climate change on the mountain
landscapes we love and the snowpack upon which California depends
for its water resources. Using innovative techniques to bring
global climate model projections to very high spatial resolution,
the UCLA team has produced first-of-their-kind projections of
future climate that capture the intricate physical processes
affecting climate in the Sierra. 

In this talk, Dr. Hall will present key findings from the study
and discuss what they mean for decision-makers, resource
managers, and anyone who cares about the fate of California's
iconic mountain range and its unique ecosystems.
