Coastal communities are already hurting from climate change and local businesses are paying a high price, according to a new study by Stanford researchers including Miyuki Hino, Katharine Mach and Chris Field.
Miyuko Hino, a PhD student in E-IPER and co-author of a new study with Katharine Mach and Chris Field, discusses the role of climate change in more frequent high-tide flooding, which can disrupt local economies.
Climate change has already altered California's climate, says Noah Diffenbaugh. "The state needs to address questions about an aging water infrastructure built for snow ... instead of the rain we will see in the future."
