A direct estimate of the seasonal cycle of evapotranspiration over the Amazon basin. Journal of Hydrometeorology, v. The gravity recovery and climate experiment: Mission overview and early results. Hydrology of the upper Paraguay basin. United Nations University Press: Tokyo, The maintenance of this ecosystem depends on the water balance since precipitation is seasonal and high losses of water occur due to the high evapotranspiration. Water balance assessment using in situ data is still a challenge due to the large extension of the area and the complexity to be represented.
In this study, the water balance in the Upper Paraguay basin was investigated based on hydrological variables derived from remote sensing data. Precipitation, evapotranspiration, and water storage change data were estimated with accuracy by the water balance, but the same was not possible for the discharge. However, high uncertainties in the estimates were verified, mainly during the rainy season. The remote sensing data allowed the identification of the seasonality of hydrological variables in the Pantanal system and in the different regions of the basin: Chaco, Pantanal and Planalto.
The spatial analysis of the basin showed that in the northern region, the precipitation, the evapotranspiration, and the water storage variation are higher than in the southern region.

So how does climate change impact the water cycle? Put simply, water evaporates from the land and sea, which eventually returns to Earth as rain and snow. Climate change intensifies this cycle because as air temperatures increase, more water evaporates into the air. Warmer air can hold more water vapor, which can lead to more intense rainstorms, causing major problems like extreme flooding in coastal communities around the world.
At the same time that some areas are experiencing stronger storms, others are experiencing more dry air and even drought.
