Study led by Clemson University suggests more extreme wet and dry seasons due to Climate change

Study led by Clemson University suggests more extreme wet and dry seasons due to Climate change

The report published in the journal ‘Nature Communications’ and led by Clemson University, states that there will be an increase in the amount of rainfall and amount of evaporation with the changing seasons as the Climate change advances further.

Key Points:

  • According to the report, the variation in seasonal rainfall and evaporation will also complicate efforts of managing reservoirs and crop irrigation.
  • The new study also examines the amount of variation in evaporation and precipitation and how much water will be available during the dry and wet season.
  • Regions like Bangladesh, India, Brazil, Myanmar, Africa and northern Australia will be significantly affected.
  • To arrive at a conclusion, the researchers divided the land into nine regions, and annual precipitation and the variability in precipitation was studied from 1997 to 2000.
  •  The study examined scenarios in cases where the rise in global temperature was around 2-degree Celsius or 3.5-degree celsius or 5-degree Celsius and suggested that the best scenario for stable water availability is when the global temperatures will stabilize at 2-degree Celsius over pre-industrial levels.
  • The need of the hour is to focus on population and water availability and its use on crop irrigation efficiently.
