April 2018 SW Climate Podcast - Diving into Atmospheric Rivers & Their Role in Southwest Precipitation

Wednesday, April 4, 2018

<p>In this episode of the CLIMAS Southwest Climate Podcast, Mike Crimmins and Zack Guido sit down to discuss what happened with the weather over the last 30 days. They break down the event from mid-February that brought a pulse of moisture to SE Arizona and SW New Mexico, including the connection between atmospheric rivers and precipitation in the Southwest (vs. CA). They also discuss the larger regional patterns of rain, snow, and streamflow within the context of the fading La Niña signal, and wrap things up with a new bet. When will the first 100 degree day occur? - tune in for the details, but as is their pattern, Zack is a bit ambitious in his guess, and Mike tends towards climatology.</p>

New UA Study Reveals the Evolution of Sonicating Bees

Tuesday, April 3, 2018

<p>Many agricultural crops such as blueberries, chili peppers and tomatoes rely on bees that have adapted a vibration technique to access hidden pollen. Stephen L. Buchmann, a research associate in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, discusses his work to study sonicating bees and their evolutionary influence on flowering plants.</p>
