In the terminal, the world seemed full of strangers and I swallowed back my tears.The sunless flat above a sho...

Wetter than wet: Global warming means more rain for Asian monsoon regions

Researchers from Tokyo Metropolitan University studied how the weather will change with global warming in Asian monsoon regions using a high-resolution climate simulation. The region is home to a large population, and the monsoons are a major driver of global water cycles. They explicitly simulated cloud formation and dissipation, and found significantly increased precipitation over the monsoon 'trough,' with tropical disturbances such as typhoons and concentrated water vapor playing key roles.
