Research by the University of Nevada, Reno and the University of Colorado, Boulder shows that rising temperatures are causing snow to melt earlier in the year, and that's not good news.

The Truckee Meadows depends on runoff from snowmelt to fill its reservoirs and streams for drinking, agriculture and recreation.

Rising temperatures are causing snow to melt earlier in the year, when days are shorter and there’s less sunlight to melt the snow. This slows down the process, which means evaporation increases and less water makes it to regional reservoirs.

A new exhibit at the Nevada Museum of Art is merging art with Chinese history. Reno Public Radio’s Noah Glick reports.

In the 18th and 19th centuries, twelve bronze animal heads adorned the emperor’s private garden. These sculptures, however were commissioned by a Manchurian emperor and designed by westerners. They were later lost during the Opium Wars, but the Chinese government began recovering some in the 1980s.

Nevada ranks near the bottom nationwide in overall child well-being. That’s according to a study by the Annie E. Casey Foundation.
