Hydrologic implications of vegetation response to elevated CO2 in climate projections

Yang, Yuting; Roderick, Michael; Zhang, Shulei; McVicar, Tim R.; Donohue, Randall J.

Description

Climate model projections using offline aridity and/or drought indices predict substantial terrestrial drying over the twentyfirst century. However, these same models also predict an increased runoff. This contradiction has been linked to an absence of vegetation responses to an elevated atmospheric CO2 concentration [CO2] in offline impact models12,14,16,17. Here we report a close and consistent relationship between changes in surface resistance (rs) and [CO2] across 16 CMIP5 models....[Show more]
