New paper in ERL: Contribution of water-limited ecoregions to their own supply of rainfall
Wouter Dorigo co-authored a paper, led by Diego Miralles from Ghent University, on the sources of precipitation in semi-arid ecosystems. Using novel satellite observations and atmospheric trajectory modelling, we unravel the origin and immediate drivers of growing-season precipitation, and the extent to which ecoregions themselves contribute to their own supply of rainfall.
