Asymmetric warming between day and night impacts all life on Earth
A significant shift in global warming dynamics has been identified, challenging long-held beliefs about the nature of asymmetric warming and temperature changes on Earth. This discovery, made by researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, has profound implications for our understanding of climate change and its impact on all forms of life. Phenomenon of asymmetric warming Since the 1950s, scientists believed that global warming did not uniformly affect daytime and nighttime temperatures. Notably, nighttime temperatures were observed to be rising more rapidly. However, this new study, published...
