NASA: An oven! These regions of the world record the highest temperatures in history


Summer hits Europe like never before, as countries like the UK have surpassed 40 degrees, a climate they have never experienced before. However, it wasn’t the only continent that was hit recentlyheat, as much of Africa, Asia and the Middle East have also been affected.

Against this background, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) publishes maps of the countries with the highest temperatures.

As a result of extreme heat episodes across several regions of the world, NASA reports the hottest latitudes globally.

The map shows the temperature that the air reached in several countries on July 13, and where it is possible to appreciate that the population of countries such as Spain, Portugal and parts of France are the hardest hitbecause as a result of these high temperatures a series of fires have been ignited which results in a climate of up to 45 degrees.






In the images shared by NASA, it can be seen that Spain and Portugal are the countries most affected by the heatwave. SPECIAL

In order to reach this size, NASA uses the Goddard Earth Observing System (GEOS)which is based on mathematical models to understand the physical processes through which our atmosphere passes.

According to Steven Pawson, a key element at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, this temperature rise is consequences of human activities, which result in more and more greenhouse gas emissionscause climate extremes that affect living conditions, not only for humans, but also for living things, such as animals and plants, that are all around us.

Which country is the hottest according to NASA?

The NASA map places Spain and Portugal at the top of the list of hottest countries, which is home to the two areas most affected by forest firesresulting in the loss of thousands of hectares in each area.

Second, in the case of Italy, intense heat waves have caused the loss of most of the Marmolada glacier, the highest mountain in the Dolomites, one of the most important natural areas in the Alps. These losses caused avalanches, ice and rock, which resulted in the deaths of 11 people who entered the tourist area.

Second, Tunisia, Africa, the temperature hit 48 degrees, surpassing the highest recorded temperature in 40 years. This climate also affects the economic and productive life of the region, preventing a good cereal harvest, one of the most profitable businesses.

“Such extreme heat has a direct impact on human health, in addition to having other consequences, including the fires currently occurring in Europe and Africa, and it has been breeding in recent years in North America,” Pawson concluded.

About UK, European Meteorological Office reports that temperatures are expected to continue to risewhich would set a new record for extreme temperatures.

Also, in June Iran experiences temperatures that hit 52 degreeswhen China reached more than 40.
