The Westerly Winds in the Southern Hemisphere have shifted with their maximum moving from 49 to 53 degrees south latitude and have intensified 25 percent. Prof. Wingenter discovered the bio-chemical-physical feedback that is driving these changes in winds and ocean currents in the Southern hemisphere. Because of this he was recently invited to contribute to The Width of the Tropics: Climate Variations and Their Impacts, an AGU Chapman Conference. He is now looking for a bio-chemical-physical links inducing changes in solar radiation and the heat budget resulting from changing El Nino patterns which impact the tropical belt resulting in an increase in the Earth deserts and drought. He also contributed to the Solar Radiation Management Science 2015 Conference in Cambridge, England where he is active in the international community in seeking regulations and solutions to climate change problems.
