What is it about?
We analyze the effects of deforestation and the projected differential sea surface temperature (SST) anomalies between the Tropical North Atlantic and the Eastern North Pacific on the Mid-Summer Drought (MSD) over southern Mexico and Central America. Our results indicate that projected SST patterns cause the MSD signal to almost disappear from the regional mean annual cycle. In the deforestation experiment, the MSD intensity increases along the Pacific coast and Central America.

Why is it important?
We consider that this paper provides valuable information regarding the effects of deforestation and of the projected differential sea surface temperature anomalies between the Tropical North Atlantic and the Eastern North Pacific on the Mid-Summer Drought over the Southern Mexico and Central America region.
