“Climate, Drought, and Change: Where We’re
At, How We Know, and California's Future.”

Michael Anderson State Climatologist,

Michael Anderson works for the California Department of Water Resources and is currently serving as State Climatologist for California. Michael began working in the Department of Water Resources Division of Flood Management (DWR- DFM) Forecasting Section in July 2005. He came to DWR after extensive graduate  and  post-graduate  work  at U.C. Davis in the area of hydroclimate system modeling and monitoring. He received his Ph.D. in 1998 and M.S. in 1993 in Civil and Environmental Engineering from UC Davis. He received his Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering from Colorado State University in 1991.

Please join us as we wrap up the 2015-2016 Mini-Series on “Water Use and Water Security in California.” This talk will outline what the impacts of the four year drought in California have been; the tools we use to evaluate water security and the current state of the drought; and what California’s water future will be. Important implications for policy and directions for future environmental research will be discussed.
