Determinants of risk: Exposure and vulnerability
Many climate change adaptation efforts aim to address the implications of potential changes in the frequency, intensity, and duration of weather and climate events that affect the risk of extreme
River energy budgets with special reference to river bed processes
This paper uses detailed hydrometeorological data to evaluate the influence of channel bed processes on the river energy budget at an experimental site on the regulated River Blithe, Staffordshire,
Associations between elevated atmospheric temperature and human mortality: a critical review of the literature
The effects of the anomalously warm European summer of 2003 highlighted the importance of understanding the relationship between elevated atmospheric temperature and human mortality. This review is
THE IMPACT OF THE 2003 HEAT WAVE ON MORTALITY AND HOSPITAL ADMISSIONS IN ENGLAND
TLDR
The August 2003 heat wave was associated with a large short-term increase in mortality, particularly in London, and Estimated excess mortality was greater than for other recent heat waves in the UK.
The development of a heat wave vulnerability index for London, United Kingdom
The health impacts of heat waves are an emerging environmental health concern. This is especially so for large cities where there is a concentration of people and because of the urban heat island
The impact of the 2003 heat wave on daily mortality in England and Wales and the use of rapid weekly mortality estimates.
TLDR
A retrospective analysis of the impact of the 2003 heat wave on mortality in England and Wales and compares this with rapid estimates based on the Office for National Statistics routine weekly deaths reporting system.
Linkages between atmospheric circulation, climate and streamflow in the northern North Atlantic: research prospects
This paper evaluates the relationships between atmospheric circulation, climate and streamflow in the northern North Atlantic region over the last century and especially the last 50 years. Improved
Climate change and heat-related mortality in six cities Part 2: climate model evaluation and projected impacts from changes in the mean and variability of temperature with climate change
TLDR
An evaluation of the daily and extreme temperatures from HadCM3 demonstrates that the estimates of future heat-related mortality for Dallas and Lisbon may be overestimated due to positive climate model bias, and a novel method for the creation of temperature projection time series that includes changes in the mean and variability of temperature with climate change and is not influenced byClimate model bias in the modelled present is presented.
