It influences water vapour and ozone concen­ trations in the stratosphere, and hence may have some effect on solar radiation receipt. Compounds such as methyl bromide, used in agricultural fumigation, could contribute to stratospheric ozone destruction (Anon, 1977). Boeck et al. (1975) have warned that increasing emissions of krypton-85 from nuclear power generating stations could raise the electrical conductivity of the lower atmosphere by 15 per cent in 50 years. Consequent changes in thundercloud electrification could alter precipitation processes and thereby modify chmate.

These theories are still difficult to prove or disprove, because the observed fluctuations are not outside the range of possible natural variability. 2 PALAEOCLIMATIC HISTORY OF THE EARTH (after Bach, 1976; reproduced with the permission of Ferd.

In the northern hemisphere south of the anticyclone belt the monsoon rains penetrated further northward into the southern fringe of the Sahara, and were more dependable than before in northern India. Since the 1940s the vigorous zonal circulation seems to have been replaced by more meridional patterns, with smaller-scale systems effecting smaller-scale moisture transport. Equatorial rains have had a more restricted seasonal migration and their dominant position seems to have moved further south than before.
