Impact of Indochina Deforestation on the East Asian Summer Monsoon

  title={Impact of Indochina Deforestation on the East Asian Summer Monsoon},
  author={Omer Lutfi Sen and Yuqing Q. Wang and Bin Wang},
This paper describes a study that investigates the local and remote effects of Indochina deforestation on the east Asian summer monsoon. During the summer months, the peninsula is subject to strong monsoonal flow whose downstream rainfall is of vital importance for China, where a significant fraction of the world’s population lives. It is, therefore, extremely important to investigate how the landscape change affects this monsoonal flow, and whether this effect is strong enough to cause notable… CONTINUE READING
