A new type of storm detected -

Scientists from the University of Miami in the United States have discovered a new type of storm over the Indian Ocean, which has been named “ atmospheric lakes. ''

This became known at the conference of the American Geophysical Society, reports Lenta.

“Atmospheric lakes”, according to scientists, appear several times a year in the equator and move towards Africa. These & quot; lakes & quot; are air masses saturated with water vapor that bring heavy torrential rains to Africa.

“Lakes” differ from ordinary rivers of water vapor in that they are a separate, drifting mass of moisture.
