Key findings

The paradigm of wet regions getting wetter, dry regions getting dryer due to human influences on climate, particularly, the increase in greenhouse gases is being investigated. We found that seasonal precipitation changes vary quite a bit with observational dataset used, but significant climate changes can be identified in zonal patterns in some seasons. The changes approximately strengthen climatological rainfall differences.
