Jet stream dynamics, hydroclimate, and fire in California from 1600 CE to present
Description: "North Pacific jet stream (NPJ) behavior strongly affects cool-season moisture delivery in California and is an important predictor of summer fire conditions. Reconstructions of the NPJ before modern fire suppression began in the early 20th century identi

Adaptation to Future Water Shortages in the United States Caused by Population Growth and Climate Change
Description: "Population growth and climate change will combine to pose substantial challenges for water management in the United States. Projections of water supply and demand over the 21st century show that in the absence of further adaptation efforts, serious water

Natural Variability Has Slowed the Decline in Western U.S. Snowpack Since the 1980s
Description: "Spring snowpack in the mountains of the western United States has not declined substantially since the 1980s, despite significant global and regional warming. Here we show that this apparent insensitivity of snowpack to warming is a result of changes in

A New Method to Characterize Changes in the Seasonal Cycle of Snowpack
Description: "In the western US, water stored as mountain snowpack comprises a large percentage of the total water needed to meet the region’s demands, and it is likely that as the planet continues to warm, mountain snowpack will decline. However, detecting such trend

Snowpack Change From 1982 to 2016 Over Conterminous United States
Description: "Snow water equivalent (SWE) variability and its drivers over different regions remain uncertain due to lack of representativeness of point measurements and deficiencies of existing coarse-resolution SWE products. Here, for the first time, we quantify and

The Changing Character of the California Sierra Nevada as a Natural Reservoir
Description: "The mountains of the Western United States provide a vital natural service through the storage and release of mountain snowpack, lessening impacts of seasonal aridity and satiating summer water demand. However, climate change continues to undermine these
