A SHOCK scientific study has claims current global climate models may have underestimated the amount of rain due to fall in Earth’s tropical regions. A NASA report says the future will be wetter than previously forecast.
Research led by Hui Su of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, said decreases in high clouds over the tropics seen in recent observations have been underestimated. A NASA spokesman said: “High-altitude tropical clouds trap heat in the atmosphere.”If there are fewer of these clouds in the future, the tropical atmosphere will cool. Judging from observed changes in clouds over recent decades, it appears that the atmosphere would create fewer high clouds in response to surface warming ”
