In the March 2017 episode of the CLIMAS Southwest Climate Podcast, Mike Crimmins and Zack Guido discuss the winter season in the Southwest - with an eye towards how Arizona and New Mexico have fared (temperature, precipitation, snowpack, streamflow forecasts, etc.), as well as to the exceptional events taking place in California and across the Intermountain West. They also try to put this "La Niña" into context, how it did (or did not) meet expectations, and whether that even matters at this point, as well as what the rumblings of El Niño might mean for the rest of the Spring (and 2017 overall).
The project was designed to illustrate the UA's expansive campuswide sustainability projects, programs and features in an accessible and centralized way.
Two UA researchers, both scheduled to give talks during the Tucson Festival of Books, speak about the importance of the current nationwide conversation about the contributions of women in STEM.
The third day of the Science Diplomacy and Policy with Focus on the Americas conference featured a panel on water sustainability challenges. Panelit Helen Ingram from the University of California, Irvine said while we know about the science behind water issues, we do not know how to govern it effectively. The talk made UA students consider how water equity fits into a culture of efficiency in science.
