El Niños Impact on Continental Evaporation

As global temperatures gradually increase, more water is expected to evaporate into the atmosphere. But using satellite data, scientists have discovered that El Niño-induced droughts have caused global declines in evapotranspiration despite rising temperatures. Terrestrial evaporation, or evapotranspiration, is the transfer of water from soil and vegetation into the atmosphere. It’s a critical component of
