A new report from Lamont's Park Williams finds climate change intensified the drought in California from 2012 to 2014 and predicts ‘enhanced drought’ throughout 21st century.
In an essay for The Conversation, Lamont-Doherty's Park Williams describes his new study on the California drought.
Climate Change is Deepening California's Drought Crisis by as Much as a Quarter - International Business Times
Lamont-Doherty's Park Williams discusses the first study to quantify just how much global warming is exacerbating California's drought.
Lamont-Doherty's Park Williams discusses his study on the California drought. "From a method standpoint, it’s a big advancement," he says. "It’s the first time I know of that data has been parsed apart this way for any drought on the planet."
Lamont-Doherty's Park Williams explains how global warming has worsened the California drought, now entering its fourth year.
In a new study led by Park Williams, researchers found that unusually hot temperatures attributable to anthropogenic climate change intensified the California drought.
Lamont's Park Williams explains that while natural weather patterns that push away atmospheric moisture that carries rain are normal for California, warming adds to the resulting dryness and heat. A small amount of moisture stored in plants and the soil evaporates into the drier atmosphere.
Lamont-Doherty's Park Williams talks with Democracy Now about a new study gauging the role of a warming climate in worsening the California drought.
California can blame about a fifth of the state’s record drought on climate change, says a new study led by Lamont's Park Williams.

Climate change has made the California drought measurably worse - likely between 15 and 20 percent, says Lamont's Park Williams.
A group of researchers led by Lamont's Park Williams have estimated the extent to which climate change has worsened the California drought: as much as 27 percent.
Human-caused global warming has measurably worsened California's crippling drought, according to a new study led by Lamont's Park Williams.
A new study led by Lamont's Park Williams is the first to put numbers to the idea that increasing heat drives moisture from the ground, intensifying drought conditions in places like California.
Man-made global warming has made California's historic drought 15% to 20% worse than it would have been and will likely make future droughts even worse, a new study led by Lamont's Park Williams says.
Microscopic, ugly diamonds from the Northwest Territories are illuminating how diamonds are made. A new study involving Lamont's Yakovv Weiss explains.
Lamont geochemist Yaakov Weiss shows in a new study how diamonds from Canada’s Northwest Territories owe their existence in part to ancient salt water.
Glacial earthquakes could help us measure how much ice is lost from glaciers around the world, Lamont-Doherty's Meredith Nettles says.
The quake struck along a branch of the Ramapo Fault, said Lamont's Won-Young Kim. Such small earthquakes happen in the region every few years, he said.
Lamont-Doherty's Adam Sobel explains to MSNBC what El Nino is and what a strong El Nino could mean for the U.S. this year, including drought-stricken California.
Won-Young Kim, who heads the seismic network for Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, discusses the size and location of the earthquake.
