Planting trees in Europe could lead to more rainfall
A combined team of researchers from ETH Zurich, Institute for Atmospheric and Climate Science and Newcastle University, has found via statistical analysis and modeling that rainfall in Europe could be increased by planting more trees. In their paper published in the journal Nature Geoscience, the group describes using data from rain gauges across Europe to build their models. Jessica Baker with the University of Leeds has published a News & Views piece in the same journal issue outlining the work done by the team on this new effort.
