Researchers have found that cumulus clouds near the Atlantic island of Barbados have contributed to global warming. The study is published in the journal ‘Nature’. Trade wind clouds affect the climate system around the world, but the data shows behavior different than previously believed. As a result, an extreme rise in global temperatures is less likely than previously thought,” says Vogel, an atmospheric scientist. protection.” To date, many climate models have simulated a large reduction in trade wind clouds, which would mean that much of their cooling function would be lost and the atmosphere would consequently warm up even more. The new observational data shows that this is not likely to be the case. in front of.
