How Extreme Weather May Affect Arizona

Valerie Trouet, a UA tree ring professor, discusses parallels between Arizona and California and the consequences of rising temperatures and extreme weather.

Arizona 360 explores the parallels between Arizona and California weather with Valerie Trouet, an associate professor and UA distinguished scholar at UA Laboratory of Tree Ring Research.

Trouet explained what trees tell scientists about wet winters and summer wildfires.

“We didn’t expect the relationship between winter precipitation and then fire in the following season to disappear like that.”
