Short summary
This paper projects future changes in drought characteristics under different warming levels over a semiarid watershed based on hydroclimate simulations. Despite large uncertainties from climate models, we find that less frequent but more severe hydrological drought events would occur in the near future, suggesting that different aspects of hydrological droughts should be carefully investigated when assessing the impact of global warming.
