Warming Climate Has Caused Water Cycle to Intensify, Study Says

27 Apr 2012: Warming Climate Has Caused Water Cycle to Intensify, Study Says A new study published in the journal Science suggests that the cycle of evaporation and rainfall over the world’s oceans has accelerated 4 percent in the last half-century as a result of global warming, a development that could portend more extreme weather in the decades to come . In an analysis of salinity in the world’s oceans from 1950 to 2000, scientists from the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California found that the salty areas of the ocean have gotten notably saltier, and fresher areas have gotten fresher — a phenomenon they attribute to stronger patterns of evaporation and precipitation over the ocean. The researchers suggest that a 1-degree F increase in global temperatures during that period was enough to trigger the 4 percent intensification of the water cycle. If that trend...
