Abstract

Sacramento climate at the time the deposits containing the fossils The 14 January 2000 meeting featured David were laid down. Learning about past climates can help Curtis, president of EXRAIN Corporation. Curtis de- us understand how our climate is changing now and scribed the difficulties in measuring rainfall over an area how it might change in the future. Evidence from these and showed various techniques for estimating precipita- microfossils can also help us understand how the tion totals using different data sources.
