Scientists from the US have predicted the disasters in the East of Russia
Human-induced global warming may lead to increased frequency and severity of natural disasters in the Eastern part of Russia and in Mongolia. To such conclusion scientists from the USA.
A group of American specialists have analyzed satellite observations over 38 years and has identified characteristic patterns of seasonal temperature fluctuations before and after the industrial revolution. They then compared the data with measurements of the satellites in the troposphere from 1979 through 2016, examining the difference between the minimum and maximum temperatures of each year.
So, scientists found out that the biggest contrast between winter and summer temperatures there in the mid-latitudes of the Northern hemisphere, in particular, on the territory of Mongolia and Eastern regions of Russia.
According to experts, the warming is not a consequence of natural factors, and the greenhouse effect caused by human activity. Scientists believe that the identified processes will lead to increased natural disasters.
