Short summary
Our experiments showed that, in cold areas (e.g. northern latitudes or mountain areas), warming as well as rain events will have a larger impact on CO2 emissions. Increased moisture in dry areas or drying of wet areas will largely promote CO2 emissions. Irrigation of arable lands might have a higher impact on CO2 emissions in warmer regions in the south of Europe than in the north.
