13 Dec 2017 The 2010–2015 megadrought in central Chile: impacts on regional hydroclimate and vegetation R. D. Garreaud June 2019 (PDF)The Central Chile Mega Drought (2010–2018): A climate dynamics perspective René D. Garreaud
Central Chile, along the subtropical west coast of South America, has experienced an uninterrupted sequence of dry winters (annual rainfall deficit 20-40%) since 2010. The so called Mega Drought (MD) is the longest event on record and encompasses a broad area ... anthropogenic forcing (greenhouse gases concentration increase and stratospheric ozone depletion have played a role on the maintenance of the central Chile MD (megdrought). Given the concomitance of natural (ocean sourced) and anthropogenic forcing, we anticipate only a partial recovery of central Chile precipitation in the decades to come.
Dec 2017 Contribution of temperature to Chilean droughts using ensemble climate projections Results obtained with SPI-12 (computer model) reveal a progressive decrease in precipitation in Chile, which is consistent through all climate models, though each of them shows a different spatial pattern. Simulations based on SPEI-12 show that the expected increase in evaporative demand (driven by the temperature increase) for the region is likely to exacerbate the severity and duration of drought events.
