  • Climate-change projections suggest that European summer heatwaves will become more frequent and severe during this century. An analysis of a set of high-resolution regional climate simulations reveals consistent geographical patterns in these changes, with the most severe health impacts in southern European river basins and along the Mediterranean coasts. Climate-change projections suggest that European summer heatwaves will become more frequent and severe during this century1,2,3,4, consistent… CONTINUE READING
