Mechanism of Congo basin drying, animation
Animation showing the causes of the recent drying of the Congo basin in central Africa. This region hosts the second-largest tropical rainforest on Earth, but it has been drying over several years. This is due to higher sea surface temperatures in the western Indian Ocean. This leads to more convection and cloud formation, but the rain falls over the ocean, not over land. The resulting air that blows westwards over the Congo is much dryer than it was historically, which is weakening the rainforest ecosystem.

Dust lifted from tropical storms carried aloft, animation
Animation of dust being carried aloft by updrafts from powerful storms, and transported widely across temperate regions. The view is looking west over equatorial Africa, with storms over the rainforests in the Congo basin. Strong convection lifts dust from the surrounding regions high into the atmosphere, where it travels long distances. At the end of the clip the dust fades onto a transparent background, for compositing of footage of its destination.
