Predicting Droughts With Greater Certainty
Description: Using new data and reconstructions of the "Dust Bowl" drought in America during the 1930s, climatologists at the ETH have shown for the first time a three-dimensional picture of the atmospheric circulation that led to the drought. This will enable climate models to be evaluated and further improved. The scientists hope this work will make it possible to predict future periods of drought more accurately. [Source: ScienceDaily]
