Abstract

How many record-setting conditions has California experienced already and how much further will it be elevated in the coming years as global warming continues to unfold? How will it affectwild life, human lives or the vegetation? One manifestation of climate change is an increase in wildfires. California has been dealing with extreme droughts and wildfires for years. Due to the chaotic weather changes, the vegetation, soil and wild life have been affected. I want to compare past and present data on California’s droughts and fire over time. This data will include wildfires location and extent, droughts, rainfall, population, soil,and vegetation. I’ll be creating my own maps through Geographic Information Systems, using databases, and previous research. I predict that due to climate change, California’s extreme weather is going to get worse, and it will affect the future for California’s natural resources, agriculture, everyday living, and recreation.
