Tonight: Discussion of climate change and California

The future of California's snow pack, its coastal sea levels and the San Francisco Bay and Delta -- the confluence of the Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers -- will be the topic of a discussion at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 27, in Conference Room A in Building 3 on the campus of the U.S. Geological Survey at 345 Middlefield Road.

The scheduled speaker, Dan Cayan, is a climate researcher with the USGS. Climatologists combine historical and climate data with Earth-system physics and computer modeling to create plausible scenarios of how the climate might change. California may have specific vulnerabilities.
