World average temperature in April is the highest ever

The world’s average monthly temperature in April this year was the highest since 1880, when observation records remain, the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) announced by the 20th.According to NOAA, the average global monthly temperature in April was 14.8 degrees Celsius, the highest in 137 years. The monthly average temperature has reached a record high for 12 consecutive months. “14.8 degrees” is said to be the fourth highest temperature in the history of observation, not only in April but also in the monthly average temperature.Sea surface temperature is also the highest in the history of observation in April, and NOAA believes that the El Nino phenomenon is affecting these high temperature trends in the world in addition to recent global warming.NOAA announced ...

Elucidation of the neural transmission circuit necessary for the behavior of searching for a comfortable temperature environment Nagoya University Group

The neural circuit required for the behavior of searching for a comfortable temperature environment (thermoregulatory behavior) exists separately from the circuit that senses temperature and transmits it to the brain. A research group at Nagoya University has compiled these research results and recently published them in the electronic version of the English scientific journal. The research group has made it possible to contribute to the elucidation of the mechanism of heat stroke.The research group led by Professor Kazuhiro Nakamura of the Graduate School of Medicine, Nagoya University obtained this research data in a rat experiment. In the experiment, two metal plates were placed side by side, one with a heat of 38 degrees and the other with a suitable temperature (neutral temperature) o...

Achieved the target ion temperature of 120 million degrees Expectations for the practical application of helical power generators and the Fusion Research Institute

The Institute for Fusion Science (Toki City, Gifu Prefecture), which aims to realize fusion power generation, has achieved the target ion temperature of 120 million degrees for the Large Helical Device (LHD). Announced on the day.The LHD that achieved the goal this time is a large metal experimental device with a height of about 9 meters and a diameter of about 13.5 meters. According to the National Institute for Fusion Science, an experiment using deuterium in this LHD will start on March 7. The ion temperature exceeded 100 million degrees during the same month and was observed at 120 million degrees in April. It is said that it was announced this time because it reached 120 million degrees in the reproduction experiment in July. In the future, the institute will tackle issues other than...

Global grain yield growth slows due to global warming Estimates by NARO

Among the major grains in the world, corn and soybean cannot meet food demand due to slowing of yield growth even if the temperature rise by the end of this century is less than 1.8 ℃. It was found by estimation by research groups such as. A research result suggesting the food crisis caused by global warming, the paper was recently published in the English scientific journal “Scientific Reports”.The Paris Agreement, an international framework for the prevention of global warming, stipulates that the rise in global average temperature should be kept below 2 ° C, preferably below 1.5 ° C, by the end of this century. A research group consisting of Toshinao Iizumi, a researcher at the Agricultural Environmental Change Research Center of the Agricultural Research Organization, members of the In...
