Hydroclimatological Teleconnections from Land-Cover Change in Tropical Regions

Ron I Avissar, David Werth, Renato Ramos Da Silva, Natalia Hasler & Ron I Avissar
Past studies have indicated that deforestation of the Amazon basin would result in an important rainfall decrease in that region, but that this process had no significant impact on the global temperature or precipitation and had only local implications. Here we show that deforestation of tropical regions significantly affects precipitation at mid and high latitudes through hydrometeorological teleconnections. In particular, we find that the deforestation of Amazonia and Central Africa severely reduces rainfall in the...
