The position of the moon affects the magnitude of the earth’s rainfall

Picture of the moon’s position affecting the magnitude of the earth’s rainfall: photographs of the moon photographed in Brussels, Belgium, on 27 September 2015. Xinhua News Agency reporter Gong Bing Photo Reference News Network reported on February 3rd that the western media, the University of Washington research team in the United States before the "geophysics communication" magazine published the study pointed out that when the moon is in the highest position in the sky, its gravity will cause the expansion of the earth’s atmosphere, causing changes in the earth’s rainfall. Although the impact of the moon on rainfall is not large, it can be measured completely. According to the Spanish "ABC News" reported on February 1st, principal investigator and a researcher at University of Washington, said: "the mountain wings as far as I know, this is the first study to study the moon’s tidal force associated with earth precipitation of convincing and." Reported that Koyama wings have been studying atmospheric fluctuations, found a slight change in pressure. He worked with John Michael Wallace, another researcher at University of Washington, for two years to study the phenomenon. Reports mentioned that humans were in 1847 and 1932 for the first time found that the pressure change and temperature change caused by the moon. But the study is the first to demonstrate that lunar gravity pull can affect rainfall. When the moon is high, its gravity will expand the earth’s atmosphere toward the moon, so the pressure and weight of the atmosphere on this side of the earth will rise. The high pressure causes the air temperature in the lower part to rise. The sacred wing explained that the pressure rise was like a container getting bigger. And the corresponding humidity will become smaller, so it will have a negative impact on precipitation. Reported that, in order to carry out this study, Wallace used Kamiyama wings and NASA and the Japan Aerospace Department to collect data from 2012 to 15 in 1998, they proved that when the moon is in the highest position, the earth will slightly reduce rainfall. The magnitude of this change is only 1% of the normal precipitation, which is too subtle to produce perceptible effects on life and weather. But this change is actually there. The researchers said, nobody should because the moon is the moon, will no longer carry umbrellas. However, this effect can be used to test different climate models and verify whether the physical mechanism can reproduce the way the moon’s gravity causes the earth’s rainfall to decrease. Reported that now, in-depth study of this phenomenon to the Wallace plan, in order to verify certain types of precipitation, such as rain and moon is more relevant, and the frequency of storms also and the moon have some connection.

月亮位置影响地球降雨 变化幅度可被测量 资料图片:2015年9月27日夜在比利时首都布鲁塞尔拍摄的月亮。新华社记者龚兵摄   参考消息网2月3日报道 西媒称,美国华盛顿大学的研究团队日前在美国《地球物理通讯》月刊上发表研究指出,当月亮处于天空中的最高位置时,其引力会造成地球大气层膨胀,进而引发地球降雨量的变化。虽然月球对降雨的影响幅度不大,但完全可以测量。   据西班牙《阿贝赛报》2月1日报道,该研究主要负责人、华盛顿大学研究员神山翅表示:“据我所知,这是第一项能够令人信服的、将月球的引潮力同地球降水量联系起来的研究。”   报道称,神山翅曾在研究大气波动时,发现气压出现了轻微的变化。他和华盛顿大学另一位研究员约翰・迈克尔・华莱士一起,用了整整两年的时间研究这一现象。   报道提到,人类曾分别在1847年和1932年首次发现月相引起的气压变化和温度变化。但此次发表的研究第一次证明了月球引力牵引能够影响降雨。   当月亮处于高位时,它的引力会使地球大气向月球的方向膨胀,因此地球这一面大气层的压力和重量就会上升。高气压则会使得下部的空气温度升高。神山翅解释说,气压升高就像容器变大了。而相应的湿度就会变小,因此会给降水量带来负面影响。   报道称,为了进行这项研究,神山翅和华莱士使用了美国国家航空航天局和日本航天部门在1998年到2012年15年间收集的数据,他们证明了当月亮处于最高位置时,地球的降雨会轻微地减少。这种变化的幅度仅为正常降水量的1%,由于程度太过细微,难以对生活和天气产生能够察觉到的影响。但这种变化事实上是存在的。   研究员表示,谁也不该因为月亮是上弦月,就不再携带雨伞。但是,这种影响可以被用来检验不同的气候模型,验证其物理学机制是否能够再现月球引力导致地球降雨减少的方式。   报道称,现在,华莱士计划继续深入研究这一现象,以验证某些类型的降水,比如暴雨是否与月相更加相关,以及风暴的出现频率是否也与月球有某种关联。(编译 苏佳维)相关的主题文章:
