Hello,

I'm constructing an essay for my Year 13 Geography class - I have to explain whether human action has affected the water cycle for the Tropical Rainforest or the Arctic Tundra to a greater extent. I'd appreciate it if you could give me some arguments for either side to get the ball rolling.

First, population. How many people and cooperations have interacted with each? In the tropics, that land is often more profitable as pasture, so is modified.

Second, the Arctic plants are (literally) fallible, but hardy as hell. From furs to pines, they basically don't give a ****.

Third, what are the mechanical actions? Bedrock, aquifer? How many reserves? how do you describe an average?

in rainforrests up to 80% of water is recycled due to convectional rainfall. this is created due to evapotraniration from the leaves of the treets etc.
it basically waters itself.
therefore, human intervention, eg deforestation, will distupt this system. less trees = less rain ess rain = less trees and on and on....

ive never studied tundra so idk about that but thats one thing i can think of for rainforests.
