HS2.4.4Water, droughts, and biosphere-atmosphere interactions under climate change and variability
|Convener: Fubao Sun | Co-Conveners: Maik Renner , Lei Wang , Pierre Gentine , Axel Kleidon , Joshua Larsen|
A profound understanding of biosphere-hydrosphere-atmosphere feedbacks is critical for predicting water resource availability, drought resilience, and ecosystem services under global change. This session hosts contributions which (i) address these feedbacks under drought and its attribution to climate warming ; (ii) show advances in applications and interpretation of water and energy balance framework with climate change; and (iii) address how vegetation responds to environmental change. The session includes contributions with different methodological approaches such as theoretical aspects that derive from basic physical and ecological principles, hydroclimatological analysis of the growing observational archives encompassing point-scale in-situ observations to regional-to-global scale remote sensing products; land-atmosphere coupling, to climate and hydrological modeling, that help advance our understanding and interpretation of water resources, droughts, and vegetation feedbacks under a warming climate.
