Testing the Clausius-Clapeyron constraint on changes in extreme precipitation under CO₂ warming

Abstract:

Increases in extreme precipitation greater than in the mean under increased greenhouse gases have been reported in many climate models both on global and regional scales. It has been proposed in a previous study that whereas global-mean precipitation change is primarily constrained by the global energy budget, the heaviest events can be expected when effectively all the moisure in a volume of air is precipitated out, suggesting the intensity of these events increases with availability of mois...
