  • Wed, 08 May 2019 07:37:52 -0600: Occurrence of back-to-back heat waves likely to accelerate with climate change - Natural Disasters News -- ScienceDaily
    Researchers have provided the first estimation of the potential damage from back-to-back, or compound, heat waves, which the authors found will increase as global warming continues. But government warning systems and health-care outreach do not currently calculate the risks of sequential heat waves. Instead, risk and response are determined by the severity of individual episodes of extreme temperatures.
