Arabia Weather - Weather specialists at the Arabia Weather Center said that the Arabian Gulf countries are facing the first heat wave during the end of May and the beginning of June resulting from the increasing influence of the Arab air high, which fuels the heat dome phenomenon, which is accompanied by temperatures reaching the threshold of 50 degrees Celsius, especially in the regions. Deserts from Kuwait, the Emirates and Oman.

Scientifically: What is the phenomenon of heat dome?

 

A heat dome is a climate phenomenon that results from an area of high atmospheric pressure in the high layers of the atmosphere that heats the air in the lower layers of the atmosphere due to a dynamic process called (heating under pressure), whereby with the compression of the air in a certain area under the influence of an air pressure in the high layers of the atmosphere, a heat dome is created. A hot, surface air mass whose intensity varies according to the region and the intensity of the air high, and also according to the period of its formation during the year.

 

The air riser traps the hot air like a lid or cover on a boiling pot. As the hot air expands vertically in the atmosphere, the high pressure pushes it toward the ground again. The air is compressed again under the area of high atmospheric pressure, causing it to gain more heat. This is scientifically known as sub-heating. the pressure.

 

A heat dome can cause temperatures to rise much higher than normal. In addition, the ground begins to warm up, loses moisture and increases the chance of forest fires. The effect of the heat dome phenomenon increases in urban areas and urban sprawl at the expense of agricultural areas, as Cities absorb and store heat, unlike urban and rural areas.
