UC Water Directors and Investigators will attend and present at the Yosemite Hydroclimate Meeting. The theme of the meeting is El Nino: Salvation or Curse. 

They will be covering these questions: After prolonged drought, the prospect of a strong El Nino event could usher in greater amounts of rain and snow. Will the Sierra Nevada indeed experience greater than normal precipitation as a result, and how will that effect ecosystems and processes that have been stressed by the drought? How badly have systems been stressed by multiple years of drought?
