This difference, according to a study by the University of California, Los Angeles, will be felt by 2100 and will have an impact on biodiversity.
According to a study published today in the scientific journal “Natural Climate Change”, the team of environmental engineers, scientists and data experts said that not all areas of the tropics are affected equally, with rain bands moving in some parts of the Eastern Hemisphere and parts of the Western Hemisphere to the south.
This will lead to more droughts in Southeast Africa and Madagascar, and more flooding in South India, while Central America will also experience more drought.
“Our mission shows that climate change will involve almost two-thirds of the planet moving in opposite directions in two elongated fields in the position of the tropical rain belt (intertropical convergence zone), which will have an impact. .
The authors of the study point out that the complexity of the landscape system is “intimidating” and that it depends on a number of processes, and that the next stage of the investigation is to translate the changes they argue in addition to the impact on the ground, in terms of flood or drought. Changes in ecosystems to guide adaptation to these changes.
