California State Water Agency Recognizes CNAP RISA Researchers


The California Department of Water Resources recognized Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego, climate researchers Dan Cayan and Mike Dettinger and Anne Steinemann, manager of a Scripps-based climate research program, as recipients of climate science service awards. 

Steinemann, program manager of the California-Nevada Applications Program (CNAP) (A RISA Program) that helps decision-makers incorporate climate science into natural resource and infrastructure management, was recognized with the DWR’s Climate Science Service Award for her contributions of “advice, data, analyses, publications, and presentations to help support DWR drought preparedness and response activities,” the agency said. 

DWR cited the scientists’ efforts to include adaptation into California water planning and management.
