During the second half of the 21st century, the U.S. Southwest and Great Plains will face persistent drought worse than anything seen in times ancient or modern, with the drying conditions “driven primarily” by human-induced global warming, a new study predicts.

|A. Park Williams||Lamont Assistant Research Professor||I am a bioclimatologist whose research straddles climatology and ecology. My specific interests focus on climate variability and change, and how these processes impact the living world. I want to improve understanding of drought and its effects on terrestrial systems, including ecosystems, carbon budgets, agriculture, and humanity. My ultimate goal is to advance scientific knowledge in ways relevant and interesting to the public and policy makers.|
