The American Meteorological Society (AMS) presents a new webinar entitled “Impacts of Climate Change on Western Fires and Drought.” Numerous scientific studies warn that climate change is a critical cause for the increasing intensity of wildfire and drought in recent years.

During the AMS webinar, Dr. Andrew Schwartz, lead scientist and station manager at the University of California, Berkeley Central Sierra Snow Laboratory, explains how an increasingly warming climate is leading to the deadly and destructive natural disasters of wildfire and drought throughout California and other regions.

The University of California, Berkeley Central Sierra Snow Laboratory (CSSL) or “Central Sierra Snow Lab” is a research field station specializing in snow physics, snow hydrology, meteorology, climatology, and instrument design. CSSL features one of the best instrumented snow study sites in the world.
