Global increases in lethal compound heat stress- hydrological drought hazards under climate change

Abstract:

Previous studies seldom consider humidity when examining heat-related extremes, and none have explored the effects of humidity on concurrent extremes of high heat stress and low river streamflow. Here, we present the first global picture of projected changes in compound lethal heat stress (Th)-drought hazards (CHD) across 11,637 catchments. Our observational datasets show that atmospheric conditions (e.g., energy and vapor flux) play an important role in constraining the heat extremes, and th...
