  • Study says temperature in the Arctic region is increasing more than twice as fast as the global average
  • Global warming impact on the Arctic is resulting in heatwaves in India
  • Researchers develop a mechanism to predict heatwaves in India four days in advance to help save lives


A team of researchers [...] used various calculations involving temperature and wind to arrive at the conclusion that any drastic changes in the temperature in Arctic region or norhtern hemisphere would directly have a bearing on temperature rise over India during April and May.


Warming in Arctic region is highest in autumn, around 2.8°C. Arctic warming in recent years seems to cause extreme weather events in several plaxes in northern hemisphere.
