Fires in Australia can affect the temperature in Russia, but in order to understand the possible impact on climate, calculations are needed. This was stated by the acting head of the Hydrometeorological Center of Russia Roman Wilfand.



“I think that the combustion products (from fires in Australia. - RT ), of course, will not reach our territory, but I think that they can lead to some change in the temperature regime. The fact is that smoke absorbs and reflects solar energy, ”the expert quotes TASS.

As Wilfand explained, calculations are needed to assess the impact on Australia's climate fires.

Forest fires began on the east coast of Australia in the fall of 2019, the agency said. As a result of fires on the continent, more than 8 million hectares of forest, about 3 thousand residential buildings and more than 4 thousand administrative and farm buildings were destroyed.

Earlier, Italian astronaut Luca Parmitano, aboard the ISS, said that he and his colleagues estimated the magnitude of the fires in Australia that are visible from space.

January 12, it became known that as a result of forest fires in Australia, 27 people died.
