A general framework for understanding the response of the water cycle to global warming over land and ocean
Climate models project increases in globally averaged atmospheric specific humidity that are close to the Clausius"Clapeyron (CC) value of around 7%K-1 whilst projections for mean annual global precipitation (P) and evaporation (E) are somewhat muted at around 2%K-1. Such global projections are useful summaries but do not provide guidance at local (grid box) scales where impacts occur. To bridge that gap in spatial scale, previous research has shown that the "wet get wetter and dry get drier"...[Show more]
