Abstract

Chen et al.'s analysis is, in some ways, similar to Comments on "Suppressing that of Henderson-Sellers et al. (2002) who examine changes in isotopic abundances for lsO and deute- Impacts of the Amazonian riu m in precipitation over the Amazon basin based on data in the Global Network on Isotopes in Pre- Deforestation by the Global cipitation (GNIP) database (IAEA/WMO 1999). The Circulation Change" latter find statistically significant temporal changes (1965-90) in selected stable isotopic signatures in the —A . HENDERSON-SELLERS Amazon that suggest (i) mor e intense water recycling Environment Division, in the wet season (December-May); (ii) a relative in- Australian Nuclear Science and crease in nonfractionating sources (i.e., sources that Technology Organisation, do not differentiate betwee n heavy and light isotopes Sydney, Australia of water such as transpiration and complete reevaporation of water intercepted on the canopy); —A .
