Colorado River Delta
December 18, 2014 | UANews

A burst of new water last spring transformed the Colorado River Delta from a mud flat into a budding greenbelt. Photos, satellite images and monitoring equipment show more and greener plants, and a higher water table, because of the artificial spring 2014 release of water into the river at the Mexican border south of Yuma. The results of the delta "pulse flow" were released Wednesday at a briefing featuring UA scientist Karl Flessa and two Tucson-based federal scientists.

Gigi Owen
November 21, 2014 | KGUN-TV

Research scientist Gigi Owen's current project looks at the impact of food, water and energy sources, especially for those who already use assistance programs in order to pay for those resources. "Climate changes are happening and they have very long, lasting impacts," says Owen, who works for the Climate Assessment of the Southwest housed at the UA and funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. She and her fellow scientists hope to inform local and state government on climate-change decisions. (This is the latest installment in a KGUN-TV series on UA researchers.)


The University of Arizona’s Udall Center for Studies in Public Policy, with financial support from the Institute of the Environment, has selected two UA faculty members to conduct environment-related research as Udall Center Fellows for 2013–2014.
