The California Climate Information System (CalCIS)

Climate change is impacting California in multiple unprecedented ways that include intensifying wildfires, flood and drought, extreme heat and other challenges. The state needs scientifically robust and data driven analysis and information systems to understand trends in climate change, plan mitigation, and increase resilience. This talk will provide an overview of a project in formulation that will involve development of new remote sensing products to support the State in its climate change goals, and deliver these products through an open source, cloud-based data system.

Dr. Christine Lee is a scientist in and group supervisor of the Water and Ecosystems Group at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Her research focuses on remote sensing of water quality, water resources, aquatic ecosystems and land-sea connectivity. Christine Lee joined JPL in 2014 after working for 2 years at NASA Headquarters in the Applied Sciences Program through the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Science and Technology Fellowship Program. Christine received her Ph.D. in 2010 from UCLA in Civil and Environmental Engineering and is the lead scientist for CalCIS.
