Increased evaporative demand will be an essential consideration for land and water management planning going forward.
Amber Liggett is the last featured speaker of the Millersville University of Pennsylvania Center for Disaster Research and Education Virtual Seminar Series for Spring 2022. Amber will discuss how emergency managers can better manage environmental hazards by explaining the U.S. Climate Resilience Toolkit’s Steps to Resilience.
Researchers have developed global forecasts that can provide up to a year's advance notice of marine heatwaves, sudden and pronounced increases in ocean temperatures that can dramatically affect ocean ecosystems.
Temperature extremes can cause serious health effects in humans. This research aims to further our understanding of the mechanical drivers of such extreme events as well as their temporal patterns, enabling communities to better prepare.
These urban mitigation policies aimed at reducing CO2 emissions can worsen air quality and cause premature deaths if coemitted pollutants are not accounted for.
