Fewer trees, less rain: study uncovers deforestation equation

(2005) Australian scientists say they have found proof that cutting down forests reduces rainfall. The finding, independent of previous anecdotal evidence and computer modelling, uses physics and chemistry to show how the climate changes when forests are lost, by analyzing variations in the molecular structure of rain along the Amazon River. Not all water, Professor Henderson-Sellers said, […]

Trees Make Rain II – Bioprecipitation.

Until relatively recently, most scientists thought rain was caused by mineral particles in the air which were just the right size for water (or ice) to condense around them. Research is beginning to show that a major factor in rain creation could be bacteria associated with plants. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bioprecipitation If this is true then it is yet […]
