Arctic sea ice modulation of summertime heatwaves over western North America in recent decades

A catastrophic heatwave struck North America (NA) in the summer of 2021, the underlying cause of which currently remains unclear. The reanalysis data (1980–2021) is analyzed to elucidate the

Effects of Subseasonal Variation in the East Asian Monsoon System on the Summertime Heat Wave in Western North America in 2021

In the early summer (late June–early July) of 2021, a prolonged and extremely high temperature event was observed in the Northwest United States and Southwest Canada. In this study, a connection was

Blended Dry and Hot Events Index for Monitoring Dry‐Hot Events Over Global Land Areas

The amplifying effects of disasters caused by compound dry and hot extremes (dry‐hot events) have attracted widespread attention. This study presents a novel Blended Dry and Hot Events Index (BDHI)

Projected Changes in Climate Extremes Using CMIP6 Simulations Over SREX Regions

This paper presents projected changes in extreme temperature and precipitation events by using Coupled Model Intercomparison Project phase 6 (CMIP6) data for mid-century (2036–2065) and end-century

Predicting Hydrological Drought With Bayesian Model Averaging Ensemble Vine Copula (BMAViC) Model

Streamflow deficit (hydrological drought) poses a large risk to water resources management, agricultural production, water supply, hydropower generation, and ecosystem services. Reliable and robust

Climate Change Migration and the Economic Rebirth of Central Appalachia

This research examines the potential economic rebirth of the Central Appalachian Region as persons from the southwestern and southeastern parts of the United States seek a safe and livable

Climate change and the prevention of cardiovascular disease

Integrating attribution with adaptation for unprecedented future heatwaves

Citizens in many countries are now experiencing record-smashing heatwaves that were intensified due to anthropogenic climate change. Whether today’s most impactful heatwaves could have occurred in a

Two spatial types of North China heatwaves and their possible links to Barents‐Kara Sea ice changes

Heatwaves of different spatial types can cause various impacts. Based on the spatial heatwave intensity, 47 North China heatwaves from 1961 to 2019 could be classified into two categories: the S‐type

Assessing the role of compound drought and heatwave events on unprecedented 2020 wildfires in the Pantanal

The year 2020 had the most catastrophic fire season over the last two decades in the Pantanal, which led to outstanding environmental impacts. Indeed, much of the Pantanal has been affected by severe
