Water Availability Stripes — Xander Huggins #RioGrande #ColoradoRiver

A science communication tool to bring awareness to recent trends in water availability around the world.

This project is based on and inspired by @ed_hawkins’s awesome #ShowYourStripes global warming awareness-building initiative. Although global water availability has been tracked for a much shorter period of time (only since 2002) compared to temperature, these water availability stripes can help to raise the profile of global water security challenges and complement the #WarmingStripes initiative by bringing attention to the linkages between water availability and climate change.
