Interlinking climate change with water-energy-food nexus and related ecosystem processes in California case studies
Description: "Global climate change creates critical challenges with increasing temperature, reducing snowpack, and changing precipitation for water, energy, and food, as well as ecosystem processes at regional scales. Ecosystem services provide life support, goods, a

Nonlinear, interacting responses to climate limit grassland production under global change
Description: "Global environmental change involves many factors that occur simultaneously, yet they are usually studied in isolation. Here we report a long-term global change experiment that subjected California grassland to multiple individual and simultaneous change

Plant responses to increasing CO2 reduce estimates of climate impacts on drought severity
Description: "We show that the water savings that plants experience under high CO2 conditions compensate for much of the effect of warmer temperatures, keeping the amount of water on land, on average, higher than we would predict with common drought metrics, and with

Managing Climate Change Refugia for Climate Adaptation
Description: "Refugia have long been studied from paleontological and biogeographical perspectives to understand how populations persisted during past periods of unfavorable climate. Recently, researchers have applied the idea to contemporary landscapes to identify cl

Effects of climate change on tidal marshes along a latitudinal gradient in California
Description: "The coastal region of California supports a wealth of ecosystem services including habitat provision for wildlife and fisheries. Tidal marshes, mudflats, and shallow bays within coastal estuaries link marine, freshwater and terrestrial habitats, and prov

Climate Change Indicators in the United States
Description: "The Earth's climate is changing. Temperatures are rising, snow and rainfall patterns are shifting, and more extreme climate events -- like heavy rainstorms and record high temperatures -- are already happening. Many of these observed changes are linked t

Tectonic Subsidence of California Estuaries Increases Forecasts of Relative Sea-Level Rise
Description: "Even along the generally uplifting coast of the Pacific US, local geologic structures can cause subsidence. In this study, we quantify Holocene-averaged subsidence rates in four estuaries (Carpinteria Slough, Goleta Slough, Campus Lagoon, and Morro Bay)
