Climatologists have found out which regions of the Earth are threatened by increased hail

Scientists conducted an international study and found that the force of hail can increase in some

regions of the world due to global climate change. In a review article published in Nature Reviews Earth & Environment magazine, studied the impact of climate change on hail in the future.

Apparently, the frequency of hail thunderstorms will decrease inEast Asia and North America, while it will increase in Australia and Europe. At the same time, the force of the hail itself will increase in most regions of the Earth. The review included researchers from the University of Bern, University of Central Michigan, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Illinois and Colorado universities, and Peking University.

“We have come to the conclusion that, in general, the threat of hailmay increase in Australia, especially in southeastern Australia, including the Sydney area, ”explains Tim Raupach, lead author and researcher at UNSW's Sydney Climate Change Research Center.

However, the researchers note that current andthe future impacts of climate change on hail remain uncertain, in part due to a lack of long-term observations and limited model studies.

The study examined how atmosphericcomponents influencing hail - unstable atmosphere, wind shear or variance and other indicators - will change with climate warming and affect hail.
