MAPP supports PNAS-published research on risks of Amazon Rainforest dieback

Supported by CPO’s Modeling, Analysis, Prediction and Projection (MAPP) program and the National Science Foundation, researchers at the University of Texas at Austin have published a new study on the risk of Amazon Rainforest dieback in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The new study suggests that the southern portion of the Amazon rainforest is at much higher risk of dieback due to stronger seasonal drying that projections made by the climate models used in the latest report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
