Four scenarios of the energy transition: Drivers, consequences, and implications for geopolitics
Published Online: Nov 03 2019
DOI: 10.1002/wcc.625

Overview

Long‐term projections of sea‐level rise from ice sheets
Published Online: Jan 17 2020
DOI: 10.1002/wcc.634
The sea‐level contribution of the Antarctic ice sheet continues to increase through time even under a stabilized climate, according to simulations forced with CMIP5 ensemble mean climatologies (N. R. Golledge et al., 2015).

Published Online: Dec 22 2019
DOI: 10.1002/wcc.633

Unraveling the influence of atmospheric evaporative demand on drought and its response to climate change
Published Online: Dec 19 2019
DOI: 10.1002/wcc.632
Simplified scheme showing the diverse effects of the AED on environmental/agricultural and hydrological systems. Numbers mean different effects on drought severity: (1) increase AED increases water stress, (2) increase AED has little/no impacts, and (3) increase AED has indirect positive effects.

Assessing precipitation trends in the Americas with historical data: A review
Published Online: Nov 10 2019
DOI: 10.1002/wcc.627
Count of rain gauge station data in four consecutive 28‐year period that have been utilized in the construction of the monthly precipitation climate data from the University of East Anglia's Climate Research Unit Timeseries (CRU‐TS) at 0.5° × 0.5° spatial resolution (top row). The high variability in the count of stations from 1901 to 2016 is evident in many countries in the Americas. The scarceness and sparseness of stations are most remarkable over tropical South America and high latitudes north of 50°N (Artic) and south of 50°S. The January 99th monthly mean precipitation is calculated for the same period using the CRU‐TS dataset (bottom row). Dramatic changes in the 99th percentile are observed where precipitation is climatologically more intense over tropical South America. These variations are likely artifacts resulting from the spatial and temporal changes of available rain gauges for the calculation of the CRU‐TS gridded precipitation. The availability of rain gauges in the 20th century is among the most challenging issues to assess precipitation trends and their extremes using historical data in most countries in the Americas.

Integrating social protection and climate change adaptation: A review
Published Online: Nov 08 2019
DOI: 10.1002/wcc.626
Adaptive social protection aims to protect households from shocks and stresses, prevent them from falling into poverty as a result of climate change, and promote climate‐resilient livelihoods. It can also be truly transformational for its recipients if interventions actively address entrenched inequalities which are at the root of vulnerability to climate change.
