The first book in the series, Assessment of the Benefits of Extending the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (December ), recommended that the TRMM mission be extended as long as possible because of. The distribution of water and its change over time are two of the most critical issues facing the world’s population. The single most destructive weather-water-climate hazard is flooding, which can result from heavy precipitation from either relatively short-lived “weather” phenomenon (e.g. The tropics are being recognized as an important element in the dynamic process of global climate change, according to a new study headed by David Lea, professor of geological sciences at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Lea is first author in an article in the September 5 issue of the journal Science which delves into a tropical record of climate change -- the Cariaco record. The first book in the series, Assessment of the Benefits of Extending the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (December ), recommended that the TRMM mission be extended as long as possible because of the quality, uniqueness, and many uses of its data. NASA has officially extended the TRMM mission until

Earth rainfall climatology Is the study of rainfall, a sub-field of ly, a wider study includes water falling as ice crystals, i.e. hail, sleet, snow (parts of the hydrological cycle known as precipitation).The aim of rainfall climatology is to measure, understand and predict rain distribution across different regions of planet Earth, a factor of air pressure, humidity. A tropical cyclone rainfall climatology is developed to determine rainfall characteristics of past tropical cyclones. A tropical cyclone rainfall climatology can be used to help forecast current or upcoming tropical cyclone impacts. The degree of a tropical cyclone rainfall impact depends upon speed of movement, storm size, and degree of vertical wind shear. Operational Satellite Rainfall Estimate Text Product. This information is also available in PDF format. Purpose. The operational Quantitative Precipitation Estimate (QPE) text product is intended to provide, on an event-driven basis, a tabular depiction of satellite rainfall QPE for tropical cyclones and pre-tropical cyclone disturbances. Tropical rainforests play an elemental role in regulating global weather in addition to maintaining regular rainfall, while buffering against floods, droughts, and erosion. They store vast quantities of carbon, while producing a significant amount of the world's oxygen.

  In so doing, the work gives climate scientists a better understanding of what causes changes to tropical rainfall. “In the past decade or so there’s been a lot of research studying controls on the north-south position of the ITCZ, particularly from this energy balance perspective.

The tropical regions are the regions of the Earth near the equator and between the Tropic of Cancer in the northern hemisphere and the Tropic of Capricorn in the southern hemisphere. This tropical region is also referred to as the tropical zone or the torrid zone. The word Tropical specifically means places near the is also sometimes used in a general sense for a tropical climate, a. Given the important role that ARs play in the water supply of the western United States and their role in weather and water extremes in the west and occasionally other parts of the United States (e.g., Rutz et al. 79), it is critical to examine how climate change and the expected intensification of the global water cycle and atmospheric.
