Sonoma County Water Agency (SWCA) Video posted about Atmospheric Rivers (ARs)
March 4, 2015
CW3E is pleased to be part of a recent video produced by our partners at the Sonoma County Water Agency (SCWA) and hosted by SCWA Director Shirlee Zane. This video focuses on the importance of Atmospheric Rivers (ARs) to California’s precipitation. Extremes of both drought and flood are examined for their link to ARs and impact on the Sonoma region. Emphasis is placed on the importance of understanding ARs and applying that knowledge to create better forecast information to help SCWA prepare for drought and potential flood conditions. Shirlee points out a key goal of our collaboration: “retain water without increasing flood risk”.
