Those who complete the program will be prepared to fill a critical void in the workforce: helping growing urban centers thrive under the pressure of global climate change.
UCLA environmental researchers create comprehensive model to find out how Los Angeles County can reduce its reliance on imported water.
Study raises questions about water management and supply in an area that produces more than half of fruit, vegetable and nut crops in the United States.
This vernal equinox — the first day of spring — flora and fauna from Palos Verdes to the Yosemite Valley have been rejuvenated by a historically wet, snowy winter.
UCLA research shows that during future droughts human-induced climate change could all but eliminate California's snowpack, which supplies 60 percent of the state's water supply.
UCLA’s extensive water-saving program garnered the Water Efficiency Project of the Year award, presented by the environmentally focused organization the Los Angeles Better Buildings Challenge at its third annual Innovation Awards ceremony.
Alex Hall and Mark Gold say California’s infrastructure needs to be designed for how the state’s climate will be in the future, which likely means more rain and less snow.
Professor Alex Hall’s research shows that, as temperatures warm in the Sierra Nevada, a deluge could overwhelm California’s patchwork network of dams and reservoirs that currently supplies 60 percent of the state's water.
From linen-free tables and wine kegs to maximum use of natural light and recycled steel, the new UCLA Meyer and Renee Luskin Conference Center leads the way in sustainability.
To counter likely cuts in federal funding for research into climate change and energy innovation, California’s government must fill the gap.
The UCLA Sustainable LA Grand Challenge awarded its second round competitive research grants this month, providing $1 million to eight new projects focusing on renewable energy, transportation and urban ecosystems.
UCLA mathematicians ‘cheat physics’ to produce stunning visual effects.
The drought is highlighting disparities in the price of water that vary widely, depending on who is supplying it in this archaic and complex water delivery system serving Southern California.
New research shows that a collapse of an ice sheet 14,000 years ago in what is now western Canada triggered a reorganization of the jet stream in a century — a geological blink of an eye.
As life-changing as these new projects that voters approved on Nov. 8 might be, one of the region’s most critical infrastructure needs is still being largely ignored: water.
New reports show how to add 1.5 million people to the county while preserving the vast majority of the area’s character and staying lower density than Manhattan.
Eric Hoek of UCLA Engineering has spent his life searching for ways to clean water. He's succeeding.
UCLA and Oregon State University scientists attribute the low levels to high temperatures caused by greenhouse gases and an enormous warm patch in the Pacific Ocean.
Even after its restoration, the L.A. River will likely remain dominated by non-native species, says UCLA ecologist Brad Shaffer.
Mark Gold criticizes the state’s decision to establish voluntary water conservation targets, and praises the continued drought reduction mandates of Los Angeles.
A UCLA study shows that warming forces have caused millennia of dryness in California’s prehistory, and greenhouses gases could do the same.
