The New Mexico State University Climate Change Education Seminar Series, or NMSUCCESS, continues its 2022 spring presentations with a conversation on global warming’s impact on New Mexico’s water resources, and how the state can respond to the predicted challenges.
“Climate Change in New Mexico over the Next 50 Years: Impacts on Water Resources” will be held on Zoom at 6 p.m. Wednesday, March 23. To register for the NMSUCCESS virtual event, visit https://bit.ly/Climate_Water_NM.
State geologist Nelia Dunbar, director of the New Mexico Bureau of Geology and Mineral Resources at the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology, and hydrologist Rolf Schmidt-Peterson, director of the Interstate Stream Commission, will be co-leaders of the talk.
Dunbar and Schmidt-Peterson have been heavily involved in developing the state’s 50-year water plan. Dave DuBois, state climatologist and plant and environmental sciences college associate professor at NMSU, will host the talk. He also is a key member of the team developing the plan.
Launched in 2018, NMSUCCESS is an interdisciplinary series that brings a range of experts to NMSU and Las Cruces to promote informed discussion of the causes and consequences of climate change.
