California-Nevada Climate Applications Program (CNAP), a NOAA CAP/RISA team, researcher co-authors wildfire burn severity and biomass emissions publication

Anthony Leroy Westerling with CNAP, a CAP/RISA team, co-authors publication titled, “Spatial and temporal patterns of wildfire burn severity and biomass burning-induced emissions in California.”

New study, funded by the California-Nevada Applications Program (CNAP), a NOAA RISA team, explores climate change impact on future atmospheric river flood damages in the western U.S.

The study, published in the Journal of Scientific Reports, reveals that annual expected atmospheric river-related flood damages in the western United States could increase significantly, raising important questions for policymakers aiming to target efforts to more effectively adapt to climate change.

Researchers from the California-Nevada Climate Applications Program, a NOAA RISA team, contribute to new article on winter wet–dry weather patterns as evidence for increasing wildfire hazard in CA

The study reveals that weather patterns are changing in a way that enhances wildfire hazard in California, while the frequency of weather patterns linked to historical floods is not diminishing. These changes exhibit the rising hazards of weather extremes in California’s present and future.
