The scientists said that the flooding most affected the North of the United States.
Scientists have calculated that the Earth average temperature will lead to the most powerful rainstorms and flooding, which will be much more powerful and stronger than previously expected, according to forecasts.
Jasper Yin and his colleagues from the University of Wuhan in China analyzed data over the past half century, with weather stations in different parts of the world and determined how the situation will change in the future with the growth temperature.
According to the results, current projections underestimate the extent and frequency of increase in rainfall and related floods. According to scientists, to tragic consequences, not only will a rise in average temperature, but also anthropogenic factors. For example, deforestation and changes in land use.
The scientists said that the flooding most affected the Northern United States, southern China, Northern and Western Europe and southern regions of Canada. In some areas the frequency of heavy rains and floods with each additional degree of heat will increase by 40%.
According to the calculations of physicists, the exception will be only Russia, where precipitation of all types over the past 50 years, only declined and continue to decline.
Earlier it was reported that the consequences of global warming most expensive cost USA.
