Waves of heat now last more days and are more dangerous shows new study

His… persistence proves a new study, pointing out that the waves of excessive heat are increasingly inclined to remain longer in the locations that are hitting, which increases their risk and is attributed to the . Previous research on the climate crisis was mainly suppressed by the frequency and intensity of the heat waves, but not many have studied how they move space-time. As heat waves, just like storms and other weather phenomena, move from the winds, Wei Jang explained to the French Agency, one of the research writers, which was posted yesterday on the website of Science Advances. In the course of the last decades, heat waves have shown the tendency “to move ever slower,” he explained. Element meaning “how they may remain in some area for longer”, and this “has great consequences for its population”. Researchers analysed global heat waves between 1979 and 2020, thanks to models based mainly on weather radar and satellite observations. Their analyses showed that every decade, the rate of movement of heat waves decreased by about 8 km per day. They also noted that the average duration of the burns passed from about 8 hours in 1980 to 12 at the end of the period under study. They also recorded that the heat waves now reach far beyond before and confirmed the increase in the frequency of these phenomena. Researchers then examined the role of climate change in these changes. To this end, they used climate models simulating two scenarios – with and without emissions of greenhouse gases – and compared the results to the actual behaviour of heat waves. “It is quite clear to us that the dominant factor here, to explain this trend, is anthropogenic,” in other words that it is due to “the gases that cause the greenhouse effect” which in turn are due to human activities, said Wei Jang, of the Utah State University. He stated that he is concerned in particular about cities where heat waves are installed, as for example they may not have vegetation or cool spaces for their less privileged residents, who do not have air conditioning devices. “The heat waves that travel further and move slower will have more devastating consequences for nature and society in the future if the greenhouse gas releases continue to increase,” the investigation warns.
