Water mass change during 2010-11 La Nina
This figure appears in chapter 3 of the Our Changing Planet: The U.S. Global Change Research Program for Fiscal Year 2016 report.
The 2010–2011 La Niña caused unusually high rainfall and flooding in some regions of the Southern Hemisphere, with major effects on ecosystems and thereby on the carbon cycle. This map shows the change in water mass over continents between the beginning of 2010 and mid-2011 (shades of blue indicate increases). (Source: Boening et al., 2012)
