Short summary
We provide a detailed spatial analysis of hydrological impacts of land use change in Amazonia, focusing on the aspect of aerial rivers. Our approach of observation-based atmospheric moisture tracking allows us to recognize potential teleconnection between source and sink regions of atmospheric moisture. Relying on a quantitative assessment, we identified regions where water availability is most sensitive to land use change and regions where land use change is critical for a given sink region.
