North America continues to break temperature records Weather and Climate

During the last week in the U.S. from Montana to Louisiana was beaten 1015 temperature records. Only for June 26, maximum values that have become records were noted in 251 points. This heat creates various precedents from the notorious fire in the Rocky Mountains to the ability to fry bacon on the sidewalk in Kovete, Oklahoma. It is noteworthy that the hot season this year came earlier than usual.

In almost all of Alabama's temperature remained at +39 .. +40 ° C. Local authorities organized a group spetssotrudnikov,

Russian physicists have synthesized a new generation of superconductors

Scientists from the Lebedev Physical Institute RAS (LPI) was synthesized for the first time in Russia a new type high-temperature superconducting materials based on iron, nickel and cobalt, which has great potential in engineering, said "LPI-Inform".   Until recently, the main class of high-temperature superconductors are cuprates — copper-based compounds. In 1993, Eugene Antipov Sergey Putilin from MSU got a mercury-based cuprate, in experiments which set a record temperature The superconducting transition state — 135 Kelvin (109 degrees below zero Celsius). However in 2008 opened a new class high temperature superconductors — iron based materials and pnictide (nitrogen,

Russian scientists have found a cheap way to search for oil

A team of scientists of the Geological Institute of Russian Academy of Sciences has opened a fundamentally new way of predicting oil and other minerals, called thermotomography. The essence of it is to build three-dimensional models of temperature distribution and heat flux, which allows you to get maps, sections geothermal field at any depth and thus determine the level at which there are conditions for the formation of hydrocarbon molecules. This method allows a first approach to predict the depth and location of placement of deposits and savings on finding hundreds of millions of rubles.

Hot rain in Saudi Arabia

Hot rain in Saudi Arabia Weather and Climate

The inhabitants of Mecca, Saudi Arabia got an incredible climatic surprise. They witnessed how the 45-gadusnaya heat abruptly gave way to heavy rain and thunderstorms. The most amazing thing is that the temperature of the air continued to be prohibitively high, especially for rain. The air is not cooled below +43 ° C, and its moisture content was held at nearly 18%.

That there was such an anomaly, needs front with high atmospheric pressure, able to keep rain clouds. In this case, the occurrence of hot rain has affected the
