Allocation of Water in the Current Climate and Two Future Climates with High Carbon Dioxide (image) Dartmouth College Share Print E-Mail Caption Allocation of water in the current climate and two future climates with high carbon dioxide. Future climate 1: where plant stomata close in response to high carbon dioxide, increasing water in rivers and soils, making the land wetter. Future climate 2: where longer- and warmer-growing seasons and additional plant growth decrease water in rivers and soils, making the land drier. Credit Figure provided by Justin S. Mankin.
