A recently published study on mechanisms for predicting heat waves in China is an important contribution to the field of extreme heat, a well known public health issue for the entire globe.
A CPO-supported study projected substantially higher heat-related mortality under RCP 8.5 and substantially reduced deaths under RCP 4.5 in New York City through the 21st century.
From July 28-30, Climate Program Office Director Wayne Higgins and CPO Climate and Health Lead Juli Trtanj are particiating in a workshop on the development of climate services for a National Integrated Heat Health Information System (NIHHIS).
