A new study predicts the spread of hurricanes and typhoons in the worlds mid latitude regions as a result of global warming, leading to extreme weather conditions in other major cities. Such as newark, boston, beijing and tokyo, cyclones are currently mostly confined to the tropics north and south of the equator, but a new study lived by ale in university and posted greenhouse gas emissions. On the 29th december they wrote that subtropical hurricane alpha in 2020. The first tropical cyclone to make landfall in portugal and hurricane henry making landfall in connecticut, could be the harbingers of such a hurricane. This is an important and underestimated risk of climate change. Yale university author joshua stothholm, said in a statement some of the most populous seaside cities in the world, considering that new york, tokyo, shanghai and so on are not far in the tropics kerry. Emanuel of the massachusetts institute of technology told you are a little further away. Storms are always there, but very rarely when they get more storms and get stronger and when they push the water to the already higher sea level, it becomes a problem for them. Others, co authors on the study or alexey fedorov, professor of oceanic and atmospheric sciences at yale, sergey gulab of shirow institute of oceanology and kevin hodges of the university of reading. While an increase in tropical cyclones is often cited as a result of climate change, it reminds unclear how sensitive these cyclones or to changes in the planets average temperature.
Tropical cyclones typically form a low latitude that have access to warm water from tropical oceans and away from the shearing effects of jet streams. The east west winds that orbit the planet. According to air university press release, earths rotation causes clusters of thunderstorms to gather and spin to form eddies that turn into tropical cyclones. To explain the link between global warming and increasing tropical cyclones. The researchers wrote that this global warming increases so does the temperature difference between the equator and the poles. This could lead to weakening or even splitting of the just tray in summer and thus opening a window for a tropical cyclone formation and intensification in middle latitudes. The authors write there is a great uncertainty about how tropical cyclones will turn out in the future said: co, author, alexey federal, also of yale university in a press release. However, ample evidence suggests that we may see more tropical cyclones in the middle latitudes, even if that, overall, tropical cyclone frequency does not increase, which is still being actively discussed. He added control over. It is the temperature gradient between the tropics and the pools, and this is very closely related to overall climate change, start home, told by the end of the century. The difference in the gradient between the high emissions and low emission scenarios is dramatic.
