The contribution of reduction in evaporative cooling to higher surface air temperatures during drought

Yin, Dongqin; Roderick, Michael L.; Leech, Guy; Sun, Fubao; Huang, Yuefei


Higher temperatures are usually reported during meteorological drought and there are two prevailing interpretations for this observation. The first is that the increase in temperature (T) causes an increase in evaporation (E) that dries the environment. The second states that the decline in precipitation (P) during drought reduces the available water thereby decreasing E, and in turn the consequent reduction in evaporative cooling causes higher T. To test which of these interpretations is...[Show more]
