Future equivalent of 2010 Russian heatwave intensified by weakening soil moisture constraints

Future equivalent of 2010 Russian heatwave intensified by weakening soil moisture constraints, Published online: 19 March 2018; doi:10.1038/s41558-018-0114-0

The 2010 Russia heatwave had devastating impacts, including loss of life, wildfire and drought. Model simulations reveal similar heatwaves may be amplified by up to 8 °C in the future as soil moisture becomes less able to suppress maximum temperatures.
