California Drought Assessment

Rocky Mountain Research Station & Sparkle Malone
Drought is a global issue that is exacerbated by climate change and increasing anthropogenic water demands. The recent occurrence of drought in California provides an important opportunity to examine drought response across ecosystem classes (forests, shrublands, grasslands, and wetlands), which is essential to understand how climate influences ecosystem structure and function. We quantified ecosystem resilience to drought by comparing changes in satellite derived estimates of water use efficiency (WUE = net primary productivity (NPP)/ evapotranspiration...
