Storms may increase due to climate change: NASA study


Due to climate change, due to the rise in temperature of tropical oceans at the end of the century, the rate of severe rain and storm surge can increase with the rain. This has been revealed in a NASA study.

This study was conducted under the leadership of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in America. In order to determine the relationship between the average sea surface temperature and the beginning of severe storms, 15 years of acquired data were collected by the space agency’s atmospheric infrared sounder (AIRS) equipment on the tropical ocean.

Studies have found that severe storms occur if the ocean surface temperature is more than 28 degrees Celsius. A study published in Geophysical Research Letters also found that 21 percent more storms occur at every one degree Celsius due to an increase in sea surface temperature.

“JLL’s Hartmut Aumann said,” It is a common understanding that dangerous hurricanes are increased in warmer environments. Storms with heavy rains usually come in the hottest weather of the year.

Aumann said that, but from statistics, we have got a first quantitative estimate of how much it can grow about at least tropical oceans.
