Relative humidity over land decreases in a warmer climate as a result of interactive soil moisture response.
When accompanied by a considerable amount of rainfall, ignition of wildfire by lightning over forested land may not be detected until days later.
Vegetation restoration over the Chinese Loess Plateau can enhance atmospheric moisture convergence, increasing the precipitation enough to compensate for the vegetation water consumption.
A new estimate for global groundwater recharge by rainfall and snowmelt, which dictates the upper limit of sustainable groundwater use, doubles the previous estimates from global models.
During severe Amazonia droughts when oceanic supply of moisture failed, the magnitude of rainfall reduction over Rondonia was moderated by enhanced moisture supply from upwind forests.
