Nocturnal heat waves will become more likely to visit the Pacific Northwest

July 25, 2013. Recently, a study on heat waves, brought quite interesting results, showing that the amount and intensity of such events will increase in the north-western Pacific countries, not during the day and at night.

Experts from the University of Oregon and Washington have documented 15 instances of "night heat waves" in the period from 1901 to 2009. Ten of them came after 1990, 5 were from the short period from 2006 to 2009. While the study materials were prepared for the press, became aware of the occurrence thereof, even a heat wave at the end of June this

The number killed by heat waves will increase significantly

The number killed by heat waves will increase significantly Weather and Climate

Today we know that each year from the effects of heat waves kill up to two thousand people. Most of the victims are elderly and meteodependent people badly carrying hot weather. With increasing global temperatures by 2080, the year the situation may worsen, especially in urban areas, where the increase in temperature can reach 10 degrees.

Thus, in London +40 ° C can be normal daytime summer temperatures that virtually deprive opportunities elderly people or sick people to resist relentless heat. The sad statistics on the

Create a map of the risk of heat waves in Europe Facts

European Environment Agency unveiled its project to create an interactive map, which presents the risk of the zone of heat waves in cities of Europe. Projections are for the next six decades and consider the most likely trends in climate conditions based on the known facts of the present climate.

According to agency staff, most heat waves should be afraid of the southern part of Spain, parts of southern France, Italy, Greece, Serbia and western regions of Turkey. In these territories over the next decade is

Heat wave on the west coast of North America gets new features Weather and Climate

Scripps Institution of Oceanography in San Diego, USA, suggested that the nature of heat waves in North America is changing. And the reason for this was nothing like global warming.

First, during heat waves observed increased nocturnal air temperature and humidity of the bulk of it in the dark. Furthermore, the mid-summer heat waves have become more severe, especially in the cool coastal regions. Since coastal ecosystems respond to changes in temperature is more painful than continental, discovered the thermal waves can strongly

Likely heat waves has increased by 50 times

Likely heat waves has increased 50-fold Weather and Climate

According to climate scientists over the past 30 years, the frequency of heat waves around the world has increased by at least 50 times. The only reason for these changes is warming, is not supported by the results of climate models and forecasts and observations for weather and climate in real time.

In the period from 1981 to 2010, heat waves occurred on 10% of the globe. This is 50-100 times higher than in 1951-1980., When intense heat was only seen in 0.1-2%. Increased frequency and intensity of not

Climate change will increase the difference between north and south Europe

Rise in global temperatures can not only increase the difference between natural, social and living conditions of the southern and northern Europeans.

If the climate becomes warmer, the Southern Europe continues to suffer from a succession of floods, storms, heat waves and droughts. Such an abundance of natural disasters inevitably undermine the national budget of the southern countries, while some of them and so are not considered in the richest part of the world. Cope with new disasters initially weak financially States will be even more difficult. The gap between rich and poor nations will increase, the level of
