Central Europe was characterized by a humid-temperate climate in the 20(th) century. Climate change projections suggest that climate in this area will shift towards warmer temperatures by the end of the 21(st) century, while projected precipitation changes are highly uncertain. Here we show that the 2015 summer rainfall was the lowest on record since 1901(More)

The occurrence of heat waves is expected to increase over Europe in the future which may strongly affect society. A mechanism which contributes to hot temperature anomalies is the soil moisture-climate coupling, i.e. drying of soils in summer, leading to less evapotranspiration along with decreased latent cooling, which subsequently increase temperatures(More)
