Researchers from IGG published a new study on the expected drought occurrences in northern Italy in future decades. To this end, they analyzed the climatic projections from the EURO-CORDEX and MED-CORDEX numerical simulation ensembles. The results indicate an intensification of droughts in northern Italy for the period 2071–2100, with the Alpine chain being especially affected by an increase of drought severity.
