The prestigious journal Nature published the significant discoveries of Slovak scientists, who researched links between climate change and the size of floods, the SITA newswire reported.
The research showed that the change in the size of floods in Europe in the last decades can be ascribed to climate change.
In the middle of climate change
“The influence of climate change is clearly visible here,” confirmed professor Günter Blöschl, head of the research from Vienna University, as quoted by SITA.
One of the key findings is that “there really are consistent patterns of changes in Europe in size of floods that are in accordance with the predicted impacts of climate change,” Blöschl said, as quoted by SITA. “It suggests that we are somewhere in the middle of climate change,” he added.
