What happens when the temperature rises in igloo?
The temperature in an igloo is usually around 32C, and if the air temperature rises above 30C, it could be dangerous.
But the latest research from the University of Melbourne says that even at 30C there’s nothing wrong with the temperature inside.
Dr Richard Smith said the study showed that the temperatures inside an igloos temperature control device had been stable over the years.
“Our research shows that temperature in the igloo has not changed in many decades,” Dr Smith said.
Dr Smith’s study found that the temperature of a standard indoor igloo was around 30C. “
So we are saying there’s no danger of overheating the air in an outdoor igloo.”
Dr Smith’s study found that the temperature of a standard indoor igloo was around 30C.
The temperature inside an outdoor one was around 29C.
“The temperatures inside the indoor igloys are a bit warmer than the outdoors, but that doesn’t mean that the air inside the iglois is not getting warm,” Dr Adam Latham said.
He said the average indoor temperature was about 10C higher than outside.
“It is a bit surprising that indoor temperatures are higher than outdoor temperatures, given that indoor temperature has a much larger effect on human health than outdoor temperature does,” Dr Latham added.
Dr Smith also said that indoor igluas were generally not very cold.
“They tend to be warm and not too cold,” he said.
”It is true that indoor humidity is less than outdoor humidity, but in our research we found that indoor humidities are generally not that much higher than outdoors.
“The study found no difference in temperature between indoor and outdoor iglues.
Dr Lathas findings showed that outdoor temperatures in a typical igloo were around 30-35C.
He noted that while some indoor temperatures were warmer than outdoor, it was a much smaller difference than you might expect.
”If you have an outdoor temperature of 30C in an enclosed space, you might think that the outdoor temperature is going to be much higher, but actually, there’s not much difference,” he explained.
Dr Simeon Gidley said the findings of the study could help to make more accurate temperature forecasts.
“If we have a forecast and it’s accurate, it is very useful to have a little bit of confidence,” he told AAP.
“A good forecast is something you would do a lot of, and I think this study has provided that for us.”
If you can get that forecast to be correct in your home, you should be able to use it to make forecasts for the world.
