Climate Forecasts and Water Management: Opportunities and Challenges
An overview of the utility of climate forecasts in improving water management is presented. Importance of uncertainty reduction through multimodel combination and need for management models that utilize probabilistic information are also discussed.

 

Ancient Dry Spells Offer Clues About the Future of Drought
As parts of Central America and the U.S. Southwest endure some of the worst droughts to hit those areas in decades, scientists have unearthed new evidence about ancient dry spells that suggest the future could bring even more serious water shortages. Three researchers speaking at the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union in San Francisco on Dec. 5, 2011, presented new findings about the past and future of drought.
