Average change in soil moisture compared to 1971-2000, as projected for the middle of this century (2041-2070) and late this century (2071-2100) under two emissions scenarios, a lower scenario (B1) and a higher scenario (A2).0b3b2ff4-9ee7-45fe-8d0c-895076013715 f312de7c-ebe1-447f-93c5-c2ddec528464 a71d11d2-beed-43b3-8417-372422c035f6 dcf754dd-dd36-474c-8f78-981b0bc507d5 ec534395-9d19-446f-90c4-a181c9ed31f0 66b53949-2796-4cb3-ba86-0d0509f128fb 9c0b6ae6-4bb4-4a27-b6ec-1b0c2dc1cc93 The future drying of soils in most areas simulated by this sophisticated hydrologic model (Variable Infiltration Capacity or VIC model) is consistent with the future drought increases using the simpler Palmer Drought Severity Index (PDSI) metric. Only the western U.S. is displayed because model simulations were only run for this area. (Figure source: NOAA NCDC / CICS-NC).
