Wildfires Are Increasingly Burning California’s Snowy Landscapes and Colliding with Winter Droughts to Shrink California’s Snowpack
A DRI-led team examined what happens to mountain snowpacks when sunny, midwinter dry spells occur in forests impacted by severe wildfire.
With $5 million from NOAA’s Climate Adaptation Partners initiative, CNAP will focus on preparing communities to address local climate hazards.
In a new study, researchers take a closer look at some overlooked pollutants, known as non-tailpipe emissions.

DRI Recognizes Lily Hahn as the 2022 Peter B. Wagner Memorial Award-Winner for Women in Atmospheric Sciences
The 24th annual Peter B. Wagner Memorial Award for Women in Atmospheric Sciences has been awarded to Lily Hahn.
The largest wildfires developed because they responded to high-wind events and preceding dryness more strongly than the other wildfires.
Study Develops Framework for Forecasting Contribution of Snowpack to Flood Risk During Winter Storms
A new study provides the first framework for a snowpack decision support tool that could help water managers prepare for potential flooding during rain-on-snow events, using hourly data from existing snow monitoring stations.
DRI scientist Benjamin Hatchett, Ph.D., has been honored with the 2022 Rising Researcher Award from the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) Board of Regents.
