The article presents information on a study conducted by scientists at the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA) Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), according to which the frequency of extremely high clouds in Earth's tropics, which cause severe storms and rainfall, is increasing due to global warming. JPL scientist Hartmut Aumann presented the results of a study based on data from the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument on NASA's Aqua spacecraft.
