If the Earth suddenly reverses the direction of rotation, we will have an unbelievably good result

Those are the scenarios drawn by the hypothetical system on the computer, and they are not as scary as you think.

During 4 billion years of life, the Earth has always turned in such a way.What will happen, if everything reverses?

The answer is this: the deserts will cover North America, dust and sand will replace the greenery of the Amazon jungle and the vegetation in Africa's territory will move to a new place in the Middle East. That is the scenario drawn by the hypothetical model on the computer, presented at the European Geological Union Conference in Austria.

Also in this hypothetical model, endless winters will invade Western Europe.The Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) , one of the important circulating ocean currents, will disappear and reappear in the North Pacific. Vegetation and desert will have a lot of disturbance in terms of geographical location.

If Earth reverses direction, dust will replace green trees in the Amazon jungle.

During its lifetime, the Earth has always been consistent with completing its rotation every 24 hours, at a speed of 1,670km / h, from West to East. When the Earth rotates, the forces it creates create ocean currents, and together with the direction of the atmosphere's displacement, it creates a distribution of different climate models around the world.

With this complete turnaround, the geological factors remain the same. That is the shape, size and location of continents and oceans, but the weather and climate factors will become completely different. Overall, this model shows a very unexpected result that the Earth will become . greener.

The area of ​​desert covered the Earth will decrease from 42 million km 2 to only 31 million km 2 . Vegetation will cover more than half of the current desert areas, while large trees will be located in the remaining area. However, the deserts will shift to new positions: the Southwestern United States, southern Brazil and Argentina and northern China.

The reversal of the Earth's rotation will also reverse the wind system across the Earth, causing a change in temperature in subtropical and mid-latitude regions. The west of the continents will cool down, while the eastern lands will become hotter, and so the winter will become longer and colder in northwestern Europe. The ocean currents will change the direction of travel, which is typically a reversal of the AMOC movement, one of the important ocean currents.

However, according to the scientists, the most important change is still the area of ​​green trees to expand , especially the complete disappearance of the Sahara desert . According to them, this hypothetical phenomenon may provide important clues to help them discover the origin of the formation and expansion of this desert, thereby finding a solution to someday they have Can really 'green' this desert.
