Our changing climate is about far more than just rising temperature and altered precipitation patterns
by HENRY HENGEVELD
Canada’s cloud cover is changing. There are more high-level cirrus clouds, more cumulus-type convective clouds, and less low-level stratus type clouds – and that affects our temperature and precipitation.
These surprising results emerge from a new study published by Ewa Milewska, an Environment Canada research climatologist, in a recent issue of the Canadian scientific journal Atmosphere-Ocean.
