A pan-South-America assessment of avoided exposure to dangerous extreme precipitation by limiting to 1.5 °C warming

Subtitle:
Letter
Abstract:

This study investigates the future changes in dangerous extreme precipitation event in South America, using the multi-model ensemble simulations from the HAPPI experiments. The risks of dangerous extreme precipitation events occurrence, and changes in area and population exposure are quantified. Our results show that the likelihood of dangerous extreme precipitation increases in large parts of South America under future warming; changes in extreme precipitation are nonlinear with increasing g...
