  3. One of the main drawbacks of LNG is that it cannot be easily transported around the world by ships.

Which of the above statements is/are correct?

Detailed Solution for Test: January 2023 Weekly Current Affair - 3 - Question 2
  • LNG is natural gas reduced to a liquid state (liquefaction) through intense cooling to around -161 degrees Celsius (-259 Fahrenheit). This liquid gas is 600 times smaller than the original volume and is half the weight of water.
  • The compressed fossil fuel, which is constituted almost wholly of methane— a potent greenhouse gas —, can be transported around the world by ship. After arriving at its destination, the cargo is regasified in a floating terminal and redistributed through pipelines.
  • But despite LNG’s export potential, the high cost of liquefaction and producing LNG has limited its market.
  • The cooling, liquefying and transport processes, as well as the post-transport regasification procedures, also require a lot of energy.
  • Because of LNG’s much more complex production and transport process, the risks of methane leakages along the production, transport and regasification chain are simply much higher and therefore much more emissions-intensive.

Detailed Solution for Test: January 2023 Weekly Current Affair - 3 - Question 11

Test: January 2023 Weekly Current Affair - 3 - Question 13

Consider the following statements regarding heat dome.

  1. A heat dome occurs when an area of low-pressure traps warm air over a region.
  2. Heat domes generally stay for a few days but sometimes they can extend up to weeks, which might cause heat waves.
  3. The heat dome’s formation is related to the behaviour of the jet stream.

Which of the above statements is/are correct?

Detailed Solution for Test: January 2023 Weekly Current Affair - 3 - Question 13
  • A heat dome occurs when an area of high-pressure traps warm air over a region, just like a lid on a pot, for an extended period of time. The longer that air remains trapped, the more the sun works to heat the air, producing warmer conditions with every passing day. Heat domes generally stay for a few days but sometimes they can extend up to weeks, which might cause deadly heat waves.
  • Scientists suggest that any region of high pressure, whether a heat dome or not, forces air to sink and once it reaches the ground, it gets compressed and becomes even warmer. Moreover, when air sinks, it gets drier and further raises the temperature of the area.
  • The heat dome’s formation is related to the behaviour of the jet stream — an area of fast-moving air high in the atmosphere. The jet stream is believed to have a wave-like pattern that keeps moving from north to south and then north again. When these waves get bigger and elongated, they move slowly and sometimes can become stationary. This is when a high-pressure system gets stuck and leads to the occurrence of a heat dome.
  • Although heat domes are likely to have always existed, researchers say that climate change may be making them more intense and longer. They suggest with the rising temperatures, it is expected that the jet stream will become more wavy and will have larger deviations, causing more frequent extreme heat events.
