Over the next two years, the Tahoe Science Consortium TSC, together with USGS, will convene a series of workshops with stakeholders and interested communities such as federal, state, and local agencies, tribal representatives, natural resource managers, non-governmental organizations, business leaders, and scientists to discuss impacts of an ARkStorm in the Tahoe region. These workshops will aim to incorporate ARkStorm threats into emergency response exercises and planning in the region and to identify social and environmental vulnerabilities. The community will be encouraged and facilitated to discuss preparations that can reduce these vulnerabilities. Overall, the ARkStorm@Tahoe exercise will help the communities of Tahoe and surrounding areas to better prepare for extreme storms, increasing both social and ecological resilience to AR storms including ARkStorms.
In conjunction with the annual Tahoe Summit, the University of Nevada, Reno and DRI publishes a report highlighting their collective research and outreach efforts in the Tahoe Basin.
