John W. Nielsen-Gammon
Professor and Texas State Climatologist
Climate change takes place on many time scales, and both natural and anthropogenic factors are seen to be at work. This webinar will examine the decade-scale and longer-term variability of temperature and precipitation in Texas, using a stable network of climate stations. The data will be compared to climate change projections based on a single anthropogenic factor: greenhouse gases. The outlook for future precipitation is unclear, but temperatures (and resulting drought stress) are likely to increase dramatically over the next several decades.
