when significant increases in the amount of “extreme

when warm air rises from the warm water and creates an area of lower air pressure below. The higher air pressure winds push into the low pressure air and also becomes moist and warm and too begins to rise. The surrounding air swirls in to take its place. The warmer the water is, the easier it is to warm the surrounding air, and it becomes easier for the formation of hurricanes. As a direct cause of that, tropical storms are becoming much more powerful and frequent but also quite inconsistent. Rainfall is becoming less frequent on land but more frequent overall. Because the rainfall is taking place over bodies of water it is becoming much more common for large hurricanes to form. The rainfall is taking place in a prime setting directly over large bodies of warm water and ergo is acting as a jump start for the hurricane and making it form much quicker and much larger.Storms are changing. They are becoming more powerful in many ways. Satellites have been watching the Earth for many years now and some conclusions have been made about climate change because of them. A study made over a timespan of 2 decades, now shows that hurricanes actually intensify and achieve category 3 wind speeds at around nine hours faster than they did in the 1980s. In addition to that, another study, also taken over the duration of 2 decades, shows that wind speeds on an average day have increased by around 5 percent. In the last 25 years water vapour has become 4 percent more prominent in the atmosphere. What that means is storms are not just becoming faster and more frequent but they are also becoming significantly more wet. Earth Observatory NASA has stated that 76 percent of of weather stations in the United States have recorded that there has been significant increases in the amount of “extreme precipitation” since 1948. One analysis found that extreme downpours are happening 30 percent more often. Another study found that the largest storms now produce 10 percent more precipitation than they used too.
