Solar activity and forest fires.


Solar activity and forest fires.

Rodovanovic, Milan and Joao Fernando Pereira Gomes.

Nova Science Publishers


139 pages




Rodovanovic and Gomes present the results of their research examining the reasons for forest fires in Europe and whether processes on the sun could help to explain them. They describe the effect of global climate change, how the emission of strong electromagnetic thermal corpuscular energy preceded fires, how solar wind penetrates the atmosphere, the effect and direction of air masses, the factor of cloudiness, and the effect of cosmic radiation, with discussion of specific cases in Portugal and Central and South Europe.
