Huge Heat Waves Are Coming

Heat Waves Could Increase Substantially in Size by Mid-Century, says New Study,
NOAA Headquarters, October 7, 2019.

MAIN POINTS

The Situation
"...scientists expect the frequency and intensity of heat waves to increase. However, a commonly overlooked aspect is the spatial size of heat waves, despite its important implications."

Near Future
Huge Heat Waves
"...by mid-century, in a middle greenhouse emissions scenario, the average size of heat waves could increase by 50%. Under high greenhouse gas concentrations, the average size could increase by 80% and the more extreme heat waves could more than double in size."

"...the authors found that related attributes like duration, magnitude, and cooling degree days (a measure for energy use) could increase substantially."

New Dimensions of Suffering
"What is new in our study is the way we calculated them, which allowed us to consider size as a new heat wave dimension."
