The Arabian heat low has intensified over the past 41 years, a trend thought to be caused by climate change
Climate researchers have predicted summer temperatures in the UAE will increase after they identified a strengthening of a key weather system associated with hotter air.
Scientists at Khalifa University of Science and Technology found the Arabian heat low has intensified and grown over the past four decades, a trend thought to be caused by climate change.
This low-pressure system is linked to the extremely high temperatures the Gulf region experiences each summer.
“This means that the region witnessed an increase in summer temperature extremes and this impacted larger areas,” said Dr Diana Francis of Khalifa University, one of the authors of a paper that details the research.
