As we look forward to the spring melt, what will this mean for reservoir storage and long-term drought? This webinar looked at current and forecasted drought conditions for Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, and Utah and then highlighted the LandPKS (Land Potential Knowledge System) as a tool to monitor land changes over time.
