>SCIENTISTS DISCUSS CONSEQUENCES OF CLIMATE CHANGE
>ACROSS THE CONTINENT
>
>Four Earth scientists (including a Goddard Space Flight Center scientist)
>will speak about new results on the affects of climate change in specific
>regions of the United States.  The June 4 press conference at the 1999
>American Geophysical Union spring meeting will be held at 10 a.m. in the
>Hynes Convention Center in Boston.
>
>The research was done as part of the U. S. National Assessment on the
>Potential Consequences of Climate Variability and Change program that aims
>to understand our nation's vulnerabilities to climate change and to develop
>ways to mitigate problems arising from changing regional climates.
>Research teams that include federal agency and university scientists focus
>on relevant issues specific to distinct regions.  The new results include
>how climate change is affecting metropolitan N.Y, the Pacific Northwest,
>the Mid-Atlantic region, and the Southwestern U.S.
>
>Below is more information about what the scientists will be presenting at
>the press conference.  Additionally listed at the end of each paragraph is
>the time and location where the scientists will discuss their scientific
>results in more detail.
>
>New York Metropolitan Area
>
>Cynthia Rosenzweig, an agronomist for NASA Goddard Institute of Space
>Studies in New York City, is examining climate change in New York City's 31
>county metropolitan areas, and the impact of this change on the city's
>people, environment, and economics. The study pairs scientists with city
>agencies to predict the potential impacts of climate change and to educate
>these agencies before climate change-related problems arise.  Poster
>session, U52A-14, June 4, 1:30 p.m.
>
>The Pacific Northwest
>
>Dennis Lettenmaier, a hydrologist from the University of Washington, is
>investigating the Pacific Northwest region and the influence of climate on
>the Columbia Basin and water resource management. Using
>climate/water/hydrology models, Lettenmaier makes month-to-year stream flow
>forecasts for the Columbia River and evaluates local climate changes.
>Poster session, U52A-04, June 4, 1:30 p.m.
>
>The Mid-Atlantic
>
>Patti Anderson, an agricultural economics and rural sociology researcher
>from Pennsylvania State University, is concentrating on the Mid-Atlantic
>and how drought, flooding, and extreme temperature effect the water supply.
>The project obtains water and coastal information from water managers and
>foresters to help industry deal with water supply issues.  Anderson found
>that larger companies had more water problems than smaller ones, especially
>during droughts and floods. Session U51A-05, June 4, 9:35 a.m.
>
>The Southwest
>
>Holly Hartmann, a hydrologist from the University of Arizona, is
>researching climate variability and impacts on the ranching industry and
>the water supply in Southwestern U.S.  The project investigated
>vulnerability in the ranching sector, the urban water sector, and small
>communities.  Poster session, U52A-08, June 4, 1:30 p.m.
