Human influence on joint changes in temperature, rainfall and continental aridity

Nature Climate Change, Published online: 06 July 2020; doi:10.1038/s41558-020-0821-1 Large-scale mechanisms causing regional drying are not well understood. Models and observational data reveal that human-caused changes in GHGs and aerosols led to detectable global and hemispheric signals in the joint behaviour of precipitation, temperature and aridity since the 1950s.
