English term or phrase:severity of floods
The water cycle will be drastically altered with increased temperatures, increasing the number and severity of both droughts and floods. Higher temperatures increase the rates of evaporation from the surface. When conditions momentarily shift, the massive amounts of water now held in the atmosphere flow down in torrential quantities (выпадают в виде обильных дождей?). Unfortunately, the prairies are already seeing this new pattern emerge. What good is a longer growing season if it’s just longer drought?
