PROBLEMS  OF  AUSTRALIAN  BUSHFIRE

  • The bushfires in Australia are now so big that they are  generating their own weather system that can-Spark new fires,Conjure fire tornadoes and Make fighting existing fires much more challenging

CUMULONIMBUS  CLOUDS

  • They are large, tall clouds that are dark on the  bottom and usually produce rain and  thunderstorms.

  • The rising heat from the intense bushfires creates  massive, powerful clouds called  pyrocumulonimbus.
  • These are also called “fire cloudsCreated when fires loft enough heat and moisture  into the atmosphere.
  • They are a combination of-Regular thunderstorm + The explosive heat source from the fire

  • If powerful enough, a pyrocumulonimbus storm can  generate a fire tornado.

  • Happened during the Canberra bushfires in 2003.

CONCERNS  DUE  TO  PYRO  CUMULONIMBUS  CLOUDS

  • Scientists worry that “pyroCbs” are on the rise around  the world.
  • It is driven by warmer temperatures and more intense  fires.
  • Their plumes are so strong that they can even shoot  smoke into the stratosphere, 6 to 30 miles above the  Earth’s surface.
