Monday, September 28, 2015
1:00 PM


1:10 PM, 2045 Bainer Hall

Topic: Water, Drought, and Agriculture in California

 

Speaker:  Dr. Jay Lund, Professor, Civil and Environmental Engineering; Director, Center for Watershed Science, University of California, Davis

 

Abstract

The talk will review water supply and agriculture in California, with particular reference to the current drought.  The role of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta currently and in the future also will be addressed.  California has a dry Mediterranean climate and native ecosystems, a global-scale economy, a large population, and globally-significant agriculture.  Reconciling these objectives in California’s climate will remain an enduring, important, and ever-changing problem.

Coffee and cookies will be served.
