Ongoing global warming raises the hypothesis of an intensification of the hydrological cycle, extreme rainfall events becoming more frequent. However, the strong time–space variability of extreme rainfall makes it difficult to detect meaningful trends in the regime of their occurrence for recent years. Using an integrated regional approach, it is shown that over the last 10 years, the Sahelian rainfall regime is characterized by a lasting deficit of the number of rainy days, while at

How dry was year 2015 and how much is year 2016 ? Several extreme droughts happened in 2015.  At CESBIO, we monitored several of these events by combining hydrological modelling and remotely sensed surface soil moisture from the SMOS satellite using the CATDS (Centre Aval de Traitement des données SMOS) products. From the implemented algorithm we make root zone soil moisture maps. Water scarcity in the root zone (0-1.5m) is a good indicator for an early warning system for agricultural…

In this special report from ABC, Anja Taylor looks at the domino effect of environmental and atmospheric factors that drive the globe to wetter, hotter, drier and colder extremes.

Jennifer Francis, Top Climatologists Explain How Global Warming Wrecks the Jet Stream and Amps Up Hydrological Cycle To Cause Dangerous Weather

Example of a destructive flood triggered by heavy precipitation, August 22-23, 2005, Sainte-Agnès, France. (Credit: D. Thillet). Floods are among the most destructive natural hazards causing widespread loss of life, damage to infrastructure and economic deprivation. Robust knowledge about their future trends is therefore crucial for the sustainable development of societies worldwide.

A recent paper submitted by Associate Professor of Astronomy at Columbia University Kristen Menou to the Astrophysical Journal suggests that tidally-locked planets in close orbits to M-class red dwarf stars may host a very unique hydrological cycle. And in some extreme cases, that cycle may cause a curious dichotomy, with ice collecting on the farside hemisphere of the world, leaving a parched sunward side. Life sprouting up in such conditions would be a challenge.
