Much of the United States experienced record-breaking heat levels in July 2022.
This sweltering weather brings about a phenomenon known as heat domes or heat islands, which form when the climate in urban area differs from the conditions is rural areas surrounding it.
According to Bryan Fried, the CEO and Chairman of Pangea Global Technologies, in these cases, the urban area usually experiences higher temperatures than the adjacent areas. “This condition exacerbates adverse climate conditions and temperatures in the area and can cause other problems,” Fried wrote in an email.
