Global implications of 1.5 °C and 2 °C warmer worlds on extreme river flows

Abstract:

Targets agreed to in Paris in 2015 aim to limit global warming to "well below 2 °C and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels". Despite the far-reaching consequences of this multi-lateral climate change mitigation strategy, the implications for global river flows remain unclear. Here we estimate the impacts of 1.5ºC vs 2.0ºC mitigation scenarios on peak flows by using daily river flow data from a multi-model ensemble which follows the HAPPI P...
