Impact of Climate Change on Rainfall Cycle and Food Security

Tue 01 May 2012


An Australian study published in the journal Science on 27 April 2012 revealed that climate change has accelerated the rainfall cycle.  The study conducted by Australian and US scientists looked at ocean data from 1950 to 2000 and found that salinity levels had changed in oceans around the world over that time.

The researchers found that the changing pattern in rainfall cycle is likely to impact the food security globally. The researchers revealed that change in rainfall and evaporation meant the rich are getting richer with wet areas experiencing higher rainfall and drier areas even less.
