Will increasing CO2 increase global aridity?
Speaker: Prof. Michael L. Roderick (Research School of Earth Sciences and Research School of Biology, Australian National University)
Date: June 11, 2015
Time: 15:15 h
Location: CHN C14

One widely held view is that CO2-induced warming will increase global aridity. However, the geoscience community have long held that the colder glacial periods are more arid than the warmer inter-glacial periods. This paradox remains a puzzle. In this seminar we use a combination of theory, observations and climate/vegetation models to investigate the aridity paradox.
