Impact of global warming on the hydrological processes governing the Asian monsoon

PI: Tetsuzo Yasunari
Institution: Nagoya University
Additional Investigators: Masatake E. Hori,
In this series of studies, we will attempt to investigate the impact of global warming on the seasonal variability of hydrological variables including precipitation and and snow cover and its influence towards the interannual to decadal variability in the Asian monsoon. We will apply our current understandings of various observational data including long-term station precipitation datasets and ice-core datasets collected by the Nagoya university to various model outputs. Emphasis is made on the role of snow cover and its changes under the global warming scenario, and its impact towards river runoff and soil moisture. This study is expected to lead to a better understanding of future outlook of the seasonality of the Asian monsoon.
