Human-caused climate change has put us in the midst of a “slow-motion flood.” What does that mean for Arcata, the North Coast, other coastal communities, and environments across the globe?

Michael, who retired from the US Forest Service’s Redwood Sciences Lab in 2012, is broadly educated and experienced in hydrology, watershed management, forest ecology, wildland civil engineering, fish passage, and monitoring systems.
