The climate of oceanic islands in the trade-wind belts is strongly influenced by the persistent subsidence inversion characteristic of the regions. In the middle and upper elevations of high volcanic peaks in Hawaii, climate is directly affected by the presence and movement of the inversion. The natural vegetation and wildlife of these areas are vulnerable to long-term shifts in the inversion height that may accompany global climate change. Better understanding of the climatic effects of the… Expand
