  1. As I learned above through the article because of higher temperatures we have fires and the fire’s smoke drops significantly the chance of rein. This process means more drained and unfortunately more fires.

  2. Lesson 3.38.4: Year3
    ”Science & Technology”
    ” Study Shows Wildfire Smoke Can Make Clouds Drop Less Rain”.
    It is true that wildfire smoke can make rainfall less likely. According to a study by national Geographic smoke particles from wildfire can make clouds thick and more tightly packed with tiny droplets, which means the water in them is less likely to fall as rain. The researchers collected- droplets cloud directly from the air outside the plane and found that the droplets in smoky clouds were smaller about half the size as those in the clouds without wildfire smoke.
    Cynthia Twohy is an atmospheric scientist at Northwest Researcher Associate Scrip per Institution of Oceanography in San Diego, she led the new study, which recently appeared in Geophysical Research Letter. She wondered and started thinking that what are the long term affects that we have drought and have a lot of wildfires and they are increasing over the time. how do clouds play into this picture. The new study found that smoke from wildfire contains small particles that affect the way droplets from clouds.
    Reischers noted that past studies had also found similar changes in cloud droplets related to wildfire smoke in the Amazone. However, the new study pointed out that in addition to the cloud droplet changes, ” a number of complex and competing.” elements might also affecting climate in the U.S.West. Twohy also noted that different kinds of clouds behave differently.
