NCAR Model Gives U. of Texas Researchers Advanced Tool for Predicting La Niña Drought Impact

[caption id="attachment_27967" align="alignright" width="320"] Jason-3 sea level residuals on 12/07/2017. (Courtesy: NASA/JPL-Caltech.)[/caption] El Niño and La Niña are recurrent warming and cooling patterns in the tropical Pacific Ocean that affect weather patterns around the world. While El Niño tends to spring up due to a random wind change in the tropical Pacific, La Niña often follows on El Niño’s heels, cooling the tropical Pacific Ocean, causing drought conditions across the southern tier of the US. How long drought will persist due to La Niña is an important question for every community that suffers from extremely dry conditions.

Achieving Buy-in: The Importance of Community Involvement in Water Challenges

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is funding a research project called, “Securing Water for and From Agriculture Through Effective Community and Stakeholder Engagement,” and its participants are hoping that what they learn about achieving buy-in from various stakeholders and the community involvement that follows can help resolve some of these repeating conflicts.

Not a Drop to Drink: Plastic Pipes Leaching Chemicals Into Drinking Water

In May, another study was conducted by Nestle Waters, “Perspectives on American Waters.
