The future of water | Applied Sciences homework help

 

So your assignment this week is to write a speculative fiction piece,  based on the future of water. Good speculative fiction is based on  science, so here are a few online resources to inform your 3 page  papers.

Surging Seas offers a number of tools that allow you to look at how sea level rise will put communities at risk. https://sealevel.climatecentral.org/maps/ (Links to an external site.)

Nyeko posted this one in the Chat on Monday https://coast.noaa.gov/slr/ (Links to an external site.) 

This piece provides an overview (with links) on the risks of flooding from precipitation. https://www.nrdc.org/stories/flooding-and-climate-change-everything-you-need-know (Links to an external site.)

Some places, like the American West, where we grow much of our winter  produce, are facing both flooding when it does rain, and more  pronounced periods of drought. These predictions couldn’t predict over  700 straight days without rain in Los Angeles, because it was outside of  the probabilities they assumed. For example, the US uses limited  scenarios within the scale of 1 year. https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/temp-and-precip/drought/recovery/projected (Links to an external site.)

Yet as pointed out by the Pew Trusts, we cover these shortfalls with  groundwater, and many models suggest that most US cities will be in the  same boat as Turkey (and a couple of years ago, South Africa), where  there simply isn’t enough water for daily needs. https://www.pewtrusts.org/en/trend/archive/spring-2019/a-map-of-the-future-of-water
