Atmospheric Rivers and California Water Resilience Workshop
(Tuesday, September 21, 2021 - 11 AM to 12 PM | Virtual Webinar)

Why are they important? Atmospheric Rivers, called ARs for short, are air currents that carry huge amounts of water vapor from the tropics to the West Coast. On average, each can transport as much water as 20 Mississippi Rivers. ARs are important because they are a key feature in the California water cycle. About 50% of California’s water supply comes from ARs, often in powerful downpours that can hit in rapid succession. On the flip side, we can gradually progress into droughts when we get fewer and fewer ARs and don’t often get out of a drought until we get one. Studying ARs helps us understand the mechanics of these storm systems, which improves our ability to forecast, communicate warnings and develop response capabilities to water conservation and drought conditions.
