Projected changes of rainfall seasonality and dry spells in a high greenhouse gas emissions scenario

Article, Preprint English OPEN
Pascale, Salvatore; Lucarini, Valerio; Feng, Xue; Porporato, Amilcare; Hasson, Shabeh ul;

In this diagnostic study we analyze changes of rainfall seasonality and dry spells by the end of the twenty-first century under the most extreme IPCC5 emission scenario (RCP8.5) as projected by twenty-four coupled climate models contributing to Coupled Model Intercompar... View more
