    Studies suggest that even a modest rise in temperature would make the global average as high as it has been in the last 150,000 years. Although temperature measurements taken on the ground have shown a clear warming trend at least back to the 1950s, important satellite data have until now shown...

    Recent studies have shown substantial declines in snow water equivalent (SWE) over much of the western United States in the last half century, as well as trends toward earlier spring snowmelt and peak spring streamflows. These trends are influenced both by interannual and decadal-scale climate...
