Drought should be considered and modeled as a process, including human–nature interactions, and not merely a product of water deficit.
A system of canals 2 millennia old sustained a local population after the collapse of its neighbors, and it continues to affect local ecology today.
New models should consider drought a process, not merely a product, and should factor in the huge variety of causes, effects, and feedbacks that play out in the real world.
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.
A method using nonpooled, continuous stable carbon and oxygen isotopes recorded in oak trees benefits climate reconstructions.
Researchers have created a framework to trace the impacts of climate change and adaptation across energy and water systems in California.
As the world heats up, the number and duration of combined stress events are increasing, causing harmful environmental and human impacts.
New research using continuous GPS data reveals how multiyear precipitation patterns can amplify the effects of hydrological loading on crustal deformation.
Climate change is shifting where ideal growing conditions exist and is leaving farmers behind. How can we secure our future food supply and support the people who grow it?
