Moon's tidal forces affect amount of rainfall on Earth

University of Washington

New University of Washington research to be published in Geophysical Research Letters shows that the lunar forces affect the amount of rain - though very slightly. Kohyama was studying atmospheric waves when he noticed a slight oscillation in the air pressure. When the moon is overhead or underfoot, the air pressure is higher, Kohyama said. Higher pressure increases the temperature of air parcels below. For more information, contact Kohyama at [email protected]
