Alison Meadow - RISA: An Ethnographic History

Jeremy Weiss - Viticulture, Temperature, and Arizona
Recent and continuing work by University of Arizona Cooperative Extension is making more climate information available to Arizona growers in order to improve wine grape production and profitability.

Mike Crimmins - Evaluating Drought Indices Using Modeled Soil Moisture Time Series
This project assesses the performance of simple drought indices relative to potential soil moisture regimes, by developing long-term, daily resolution soil water profile climatologies for four Southwest locations.

George Frisvold - Crop Abandonment: The Role of Climate and Economics 
This project asks: Why are millions of acres of US cropland abandoned each year?
