Branch, Oliver; Wulfmeyer, Volker (2019): Deliberate enhancement of rainfall using desert plantations. In: PNAS 116 (38), S. 18841–18847. DOI: 10.1073/pnas.1904754116.

„We have demonstrated that large plantations do enhance rainfall in arid regions and identified the underlying process chain. By using this knowledge we have developed a global index to assess which deserts are most favorable for weather modification and discuss how rainfall impacts can be intensified using agricultural methods.“
