Australian deserts young but monsoon is old new study shows how it affects global temperature
Researchers have analysed how monsoon rainfall in tropical Australia has changed since 1800 and discovered a major effect 라이브 카지노on global temperature over millennia.
The research, using satellite records, shows that the impact of monsoon rainfall on global temperatures has changed little since the dawn of civilisation.
Professor Chris Rapson from the Australian National University’s School of Geography and the Australian National University’s School of Climate Sciences said the findings were “an amazing piece of news”.
“For the first time, we know that monsoon rainfall was not completely dependent on a lot of greenhouse gases during the last 1200 years,” he said.
“We were surprised that the last 15 years have seen global temperatures slightly and slightly change, but we’re only scratching the surface of the potential impacts of climate change on our lives.
“The new study suggests that even if we didn’t reduce emissions today, we수원안마 can still reduce some of these impacts, because this global change makes monsoon conditions and the water cycle more intense.
“But in the mean time, the impacts of climate change are having a greater impact on people and wildlife than we expected before.”
Professor Rapson said the research was important, given its implications on local and national politics.
“Climate change has implications across the world and we don’t really get a good picture of how local impacts are affecting climate and people because it’s often based on old measurements and estimates,” he said.
“So a recent study led by our colleague Peter Uhlmann showed that for the same period, there was an incredible rise in temperature for southern Austr여주출장샵alia.
“It was 1.7 degrees Celsius over 100 years, and that can’t even account for the rise in sea level.”
Professor Uhlmann said that was unprecedented globally.
“Our study shows that our records show that monsoon rainfall in southern Australia, the northern tropical rainforest and much of what we know of tropical climate is changing at an astounding pace over the last 150 years,” he said.
“It’s a global study that’s important because all of our global carbon cycle carbon cycle models only account for the last 1500 years.
“So the way you calculate climate change and regional effects is by looking over time and using proxies.”
Co-author Professor Bruce Betts from Queensland University of Technology said it was a significant find.
“The impact of monsoon monsoon on world temperatures is probably the largest an
