Earth’s Clouds Have Moved From Where They Were 30 Years Ago
Historical cloud coverage has moved significantly around the world in the last 30 years due to global warming – but volcanic eruptions can reverse the trend, according to a new study by researchers at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at University of California San Diego.
Researchers analyzed satellite cloud records and found that the cloudy storm tracks on Earth are moving toward the poles while subtropical dry zones are expanding. Cloud tops are also moving higher in the atmosphere.
