South-Central and Urban Northeast RISA Teams Examine Concentrated and Intensifying Humid Heat Extremes in the IPCC AR6 Regions

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.
