La Nymphe du Désert contemple l'eau. Phil Caterino Phil Caterino
The searing “megadrought” that has gripped the southwest United States for more than two decades is the driest 22-year period in at least 1.200 years. The region hasn’t seen a more severe drought since the start of the scientific record around the year 800. Before last year, a previous megadrought occurring in the late 1500s was the only other drought known to be worse than today. A megadrought is typically defined as a severe dry period lasting at least a couple of decades.
The current event has been strongly influenced by human-caused climate change, the study said. In fact, without the influence of global warming, today’s conditions probably wouldn’t be classified as a megadrought at all.
These conditions have contributed to ongoing water woes across the Western states. Lake Mead and Lake Powell—two of America’s largest reservoirs that provide water for millions of people—both reached record low levels in 2021. The federal government declared a water shortage at Lake Mead last year for the first time in the reservoir’s history.
Now updated research concludes that the last couple of years has pushed things over the edge. Soils across the Southwest were exceptionally dry in 2021. That’s despite abundant rainfall over the summer in some parts of the region.
As a result, the ongoing megadrought has stolen the record—and it’s probably not over yet.
Researchers also used an ensemble of climate models, which allowed them to make projections about the region’s climate future. The current drought has lasted 22 years so far, and the study finds that it’s highly likely—with a probability of around 94 percent—to last at least another year. And factoring in the continued influence of global warming over the next decade, it has a relatively high chance of breaking 30 years total before it finally ends.
