Insights from Land Surface Temperature Analysis: Iraq's Warming Trends
We've delved into the heart of Iraq's climate with a comprehensive data analysis on heat and temperature trends derived from Land Surface Temperature (LST), often referred to as the "earth-skin temperature." This represents the temperature of the top few millimeters of the earth's surface, providing crucial insights into our changing environment. Our findings from 2002 to 2023 reveal a noteworthy and consistent increase in temperatures across Iraq and its surrounding regions. This analysis sheds light on the escalating warmth, urging us to examine the implications for our ecosystems. Notably, the rise in night-time LST is a cause for concern, particularly due to its potential adverse effects on agricultural processes and crops. Understanding these trends allows us to address challenges proactively and work towards sustainable solutions.MORE
