Forecasting global water stress: successes and limitations
Matt Landis, Research Scientist, ISciences, LLC

Water stress is increasingly recognized as a central emerging challenge of the 21st century. Early warning of extreme water deficits and surpluses are valuable across sectors of society, ranging from food production to electricity generation. In this seminar, I’ll describe models and the underlying data used to forecast water stress globally over timescales ranging from months to decades, with a focus on what such data and models can and cannot tell us.
