Projected changes in soil moisture
This figure appears in chapter 3 of the Climate Change Global Food Security and the U.S. Food System report.
Mid (left) and late (right) 21st-century changes are compared to the 1986–2005 baseline under the low-emissions (RCP 2.6, top) and high-emissions (RCP 8.5, bottom) scenarios. Multimodel ensemble-mean changes are shown where gray dashes indicate areas where changes are small (less than one standard deviation) compared to natural variability. Drying is much more pronounced in the higher emissions scenarios, particularly toward the end of the century. Source: This figure was produced using CMIP5 model output through the web application “Climate Explorer,”.
