Scientists are becoming more adept at projecting climate conditions using advances in computer modeling techniques.
Revised data from a key economic model used by federal agencies shows the costs of climate change impacts could be twice as high as estimated.
Desert dust blown onto the West’s mountains causes snow to melt prematurely, costing the Colorado River five percent of its annual flow.
Climate research offers little reason to believe that the snowy start to the year in the Colorado Basin is a harbinger of wetter times to come.
With drought, increasing water consumption, and climate change, the Colorado River Basin appears headed for a day of reckoning.
Both NOAA and NASA reported today that 2010 tied with 2005 for the title of warmest year on record.
Researchers using different techniques have arrived at a similar conclusion: 2010 was a remarkably warm year. But did it set a new record?
Armed with modern data, a team of scientists has revisited the Cadillac Desert and found the Southwest's water woes are as bad as ever.
