Warming postponed due to severe drought in Puerto Rico

Updated: 2 days ago

Originally published August 19, 2015


The east side of Puerto Rico is experiencing a severe drought that has already reached historical proportions. Some plants inside the experimental plots seem to be wilting due to the lack of rainfall, and the soil is dry and unusually cracked. For this reason, the start-up date of TRACE has been posponed until further notice.
