Drier Mediterranean Soils due to Greenhouse Warming bring easterly Winds over Summertime Central Europe

Abstract

Western European summers become more continental in simulations for the 21st century. Anomalously large summer warming over the Mediterranean area in concert with drier soils and a reduced surface pressure can explain this change. The warming is enhanced due to soil moisture depletion which limits the cooling of the land surface by evaporation. A large… (More)
