Extreme rainfalls are connected across continents - climate short science news

Using a new method to analyze satellite data, scientists have found that extreme rainfalls across continents, place that are thousands of miles away, are linked, probably by jetstreams.

Knowing that such a global connection pattern of extreme rainfall exists could help to forecast weather much better.

Also, as extreme rainfall is likely to occur more frequently in the future as a consequence of human-caused climate change, this new insight in rainfall connection across the globe is extremely important.
