INDONESIA (OBSERVATORY) – Scientists from the University of California predict the drying of the Amazon rainforest due to the increase in greenhouse gases and a significant increase in humidity in forest areas of Africa and Indonesia.
A group of climatologists led by Gabriel Kuperman believe that the response of the tropical forests of Asia and the Amazon is associated with a change in precipitation due to the excess of carbon dioxide.
Streams of wind and moisture, which comes from the ocean, change because of the reduction in the amount of water that enters the atmosphere, according to the Federal News Agency.
Scientists have calculated that by the end of the 21st century in the Amazon basin, the average amount of precipitation will decrease by 1 mm per day. At the same climatologists are sure that the same amount will increase the amount of rainfall in Indonesia.
