Irreversible declines in freshwater storage projected in parts of Asia by 2060

Summary by Ground News
New research led by scientists at Penn State, Tsinghua University and the University of Texas at Austin projects that climate change will cause irreversible declines in freshwater storage in the region. The Tibetan Plateau supplies a substantial portion of the water demand for almost two billion people and is highly sensitive to climate change. The researchers used a novel neural net-based machine learning technique to relate these observed changes in total water storage to key climate variables.

Irreversible declines in freshwater storage projected in parts of Asia by 2060

The Tibetan Plateau, known as the “water tower” of Asia, supplies freshwater for nearly two billion people who live downstream. New research led by scientists at Penn State, Tsinghua University and the University of Texas at Austin projects that climate change, under a scenario of weak climate policy, will cause irreversible declines in freshwater storage in the region, constituting a total collapse of the water supply for central Asia and Afgha…

Irreversible declines in freshwater storage projected in parts of Asia by 2060

A comprehensive study on water storage in Tibetan Plateau projects near-total loss of freshwater storage in parts of Asia by mid-century under modest climate policy scenario. The Tibetan Plateau, known as the 'water tower' of Asia, supplies freshwater for nearly two billion people who live downstream.
