I’ll say just a word about Iris’ work on this.

  • To investigate variability in precipitation with the PDO, Iris has focused on Arizona and New Mexico.

    • The impact of the PDO on precipitation varies with other climate patterns: ENSO, the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (AMO) and the PNA.

    • A clear distinction of the PDO signal in rainfall data may be hindered by the changing role of the PDO over the course of the year. Precipitation during winter and the Moonsoon season depend on very different processes that are differently impacted by the PDO.

  • Considering these factors, she has done a drought projection for the next two decades.

The impacts for the current negative PDO phase are projected to be 1.6 times as large as the impacts of the A1B Scenario on P-E during 2020-2040 when evaluated according to the GPCC dataset, and about equal to the impacts of the A1B Scenario when evaluated according to the CRU dataset.

This means that if future impacts of the PDO on precipitation are comparable to past impacts, the effect of the current negative PDO will at least double the expected impacts of global warming until 2030.

The projected precipitation impacts of the combination of a negative PDO phase with a positive AMO phase are about twice as large as the impacts of the A1B Scenario on P-E during 2020-2040 when evaluated according to the GPCC dataset, and about equal to the impacts of the A1B Scenario when evaluated according to the CRU dataset.
