Extreme precipitation events are likely to occur more often in Amazonia and elsewhere as the world's climate changes. Storms are known to damage trees, but no systematic study has been done of tree loss during storms in tropical forests. To quantify tree mortality during a storm event, Negrón-Juárez et al. combined field measurements, remote sensing data, and modeling.
