This project will focus on trace vegetation-drought feedbacks and how these complex interactions shaped previous drought characteristics and influenced their predictability. It will also quantify what role, if any, vegetation played in the onset, evolution, and termination of historical severe seasonal-to-interannual droughts. This project will use the latest generation of coupled Earth-system models from CMIP6, along with insights gleaned from historical analysis to characterize the influence of vegetation-drought interactions on future North American drought risks.
