                         important ocean and atmosphere processes that influence climate. 
                         In the last three decades, the intensification of the hydrological 
                         cycle has increased the interannual variability of total 
                         freshwater discharged into the ocean. However, the feedback 
                         mechanisms of the Amazon River plume acting on this 
                         intensification are not fully understood. Correlation maps and 
                         multiple regression analysis applied to 16 years of satellite data 
                         and river flow measurements indicate that a positive precipitation 
                         trend of 15 mm/year in the western Amazon basin follows the 
                         long\‐term warming of the tropical Atlantic. This increased 
                         the total amount of freshwater discharged into the ocean and 
                         reduced the Amazon River plume salinity by 3.5% per year in the 
                         main plume water export pathway. Based on these results we propose 
                         a process\‐oriented model of the feedback process that 
                         explains the intensification of the Amazon hydrological cycle.",
