Influence of the ocean and greenhouse gases on severe drought likelihood in the central US in 2012

Abstract:

The impacts of sea surface temperature (SST) anomalies and anthropogenic greenhouse gases on the likelihood of extreme drought occurring in the central US in the year 2012 was investigated using large-ensemble simulations from a global atmospheric climate model. Two sets of experiments were conducted. In the first, the simulated hydroclimate of 2012 was compared to a baseline period (1986 – 2014) to investigate the impact of SSTs. In the second, the hydroclimate in a world with 2012-level ant...
