and Sudan has a large oscillation between oceanic sources in the winter and spring and terrestrial sources during summer into fall. Much of southern Africa has a similar variation, but 6 months out of phase. The general east–west gradient over North America is maintained throughout the year but fluctuates from a predominance of marine sources in winter to a much larger portion of continental sources in summer. Most of Eurasia also shows the same annual cycle as North America. Very strong gradients

from 452 to 8848 m (Mt. Everest) above mean sea level (MSL). It has complex physiographic variability with tropical forest in low-lying areas to semiarid and arctic environments in high-elevation regions. The catchment area is about 3700 km 2 . The annual precipitation averages about 1850 mm and has high altitudinal variability, from around 2500 mm at low elevation (below 3000 m) to around 600 mm at high elevation (above 4500 m). The climate has four seasons: winter (December–February), premonsoon

United States decreased by as much as 30% in June because of irrigation and reservoir regulations, while monthly streamflow increased by as much as 30% in Arctic river basins in Asia during the winter low-flow period. Oki and Kanae (2006) argue that these variations in streamflow can lead to water-related hazards such as droughts and floods if societies fail to anticipate or monitor these changes in the hydrological cycle. Furthermore, variations in reservoir storage have important implications for

Gulf of California ( Fig. 5d ), which were bolstered by areal-averaged sea surface temperature anomalies of ~0.4°–0.8°C during a warm phase of El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) (i.e., multivariate ENSO index = 1.0–1.5; Wolter and Timlin 1998 ), provided additional water vapor (e.g., Newman et al. 2012 ). Farther south, dry air at 850 hPa (<~4 g kg −1 ) separated the AR from the tropical water vapor reservoir, while cold advection in northwesterly flow occurred poleward of the AR. The freezing

the topsoil layer (within ~0.15 m deep from the skin soil surface). Blue, green, and red lines correspond to CTL, RNL, and RNL-ObsP simulations, respectively. The soil moisture simulations at ON-OMW ( Fig. 10c ) show reasonable agreement with observations for only some parts of the snow accumulation period (DJFM) and late snowmelt period (May). For the most part, however, CLASS results greatly disagree with observations, showing many oscillations (peaks) that are not shown by the measurements. Its
