How can we mobilize science to support the transformational global action required by climate change? By creating a new type of scientist. In this webinar, Drs. Mary Ann Rozance, Meade Krosby and Amy Snover will discuss the need for science training that builds collaborative science skills at different career stages to develop a strong community of practice around actionable climate science.

According to the March 8 U.S. Drought Monitor, 100% of CA/NV is in drought, with 22.2% in Extreme (D3) or Exceptional (D4) Drought. Most of the western U.S. was exceptionally dry in February, with record low total precipitation at over 200 SNOTEL sites. In California, the driest January and February in state history has led to a March 1 statewide snowpack of less than 70% of average, down from 160% at the start of the new year. With low reservoir carryover, the impacts of snow drought will reach into summer and beyond.

The California-Nevada Drought Early Warning System (CA-NV DEWS) March 2022 Drought & Climate Outlook Webinar is part of a series of regular drought and climate outlook webinars designed to provide stakeholders and other interested parties in the region with timely information on current drought status and impacts, as well as a preview of current and developing climatic events (i.e. El Niño and La Niña).
