Impacts of land-atmosphere interactions for changes in aridity index under global warming
Aridity as measured by the aridity index is projected to increase over land under global warming. So far, the main focus has been on influences of the warming ocean and atmospheric processes in driving these changes. New results from global climate model simulations identify land-atmosphere interactions as additional important drivers for this tendency in climate change projections.
