Arkin quoted in Scientific America

ESSIC Deputy Director Phillip Arkin is mentioned in a recent Scientific American story titled, “Stronger Storms Could Flood Fish with Pollution.” The study suggests that if global greenhouse gas emissions remain steady, more frequent and heavier rains will wash about one-fifth more nitrogen into waterways by the end of the century.  Arkin noted that although precipitation remains one of the most difficult aspects of climate change to predict, the researchers seem to have accounted for the topic's inherent uncertainty.
