California Hydrology in a Warmer World – Dr Robert J. Allen, University of California, Riverside
Scientists rely on large-scale computer models to further their understanding of the Earth’s environment, as well as to predict what the climate will be like in the future. Consisting of complex computer code, many of today’s models have actually been in development for 20 years or more. Dr Robert J. Allen of the University of California, Riverside, has recently tested some of their mettle to predict his state’s future climate. Contrary to conventional thought, Dr Allen and his colleagues conclude that California may be in for a wetter future.
