Scientists have predicted that droughts and floods will become more frequent and severe as our planet warms and climate changes, but detecting this on regional and continental scales has proven difficult. Now a new UMD and NASA study confirms that major droughts and pluvials – periods of excessive precipitation and water storage on land – have indeed been occurring more often.

Groundwater Recharge Estimated by Land Surface Models: An Evaluation in the Conterminous United States
ESSIC/CISESS Assistant Research Scientists Bailing Li and Jessica M. Erlingis are authors of a paper in the Journal of Hydrometeorology titled “Groundwater Recharge Estimated by Land Surface Models: An Evaluation in the Conterminous United States”.
A study led by ESSIC Assistant Research Scientist Bailing Li was one of the most downloaded papers in the recent publication history of Wiley. The paper, titled “Global GRACE Data Assimilation for Groundwater and Drought Monitoring: Advances and Challenges” and published in Water Resources Research, is among the top 10% most downloaded papers between January 2018 and December 2019.
