12:00 p.m. - 1:15 p.m. WWRC Presentation: Learning from the Colorado River Conversations. Webinar Only. Speakers: Katharine Jacobs, Director, Center for Climate Adaptation Science and Solutions (CCASS) and Professor, Environmental Science, University of Arizona; Amy McCoy, Partner, Martin & McCoy. Over the past few years, the UA Center for Climate Adaptation Science and Solutions has hosted a series of events aimed at broadening the conversation about managing the Colorado River. These included an assessment of interdisciplinary science needs, recognizing the complexity of river management issues; a conference soliciting input from water managers on the science agenda developed in the first event; and a conference organized around building relationships among entities and individuals with different perspectives on river management priorities. In addition, CCASS hosted a series of scenario planning workshops focused on exploring extreme "black swan" events. These conversations included participants from all seven basin states and Mexico, as well as tribal and environmental interests, NGOs, and federal agencies. More info and link to register for the webinar may be found at the CWAG Web Calendar listing for this event. LOCATION: Webinar only.

NEW! 12:00 p.m. - 1:15 p.m. WWRC Presentation: Human-environment dynamics in the Sonoran Desert and Ae. aegypti, the vector of dengue, Zika and chikungunya. Webinar Only. Speaker: Kacey Ernst, Associate Professor and Program Director of Epidemiology, Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, University of Arizona. Aedes aegypti is an invasive mosquito that has become established throughout the urban landscapes in Arizona and Sonora, Mexico. A native of the tropics, the urban landscape facilitates its survival in the arid desert region. We conducted field collections and analyzed mosquito surveillance data to better understand the primary anthropogenic drivers of its abundance in southern Arizona and northern Mexico. Our results will provide a basis for a discussion on water use in the desert environment, how extreme heat mitigation plans may result in higher mosquito abundance, and implications for household and community water management practices. Check out the CWAG Web Calendar listing for this event to find a link to register for the webinar. LOCATION: Webinar only.
