PhD opportunity “Deadly Climate Hazards Combined: Tropical Cyclones and Deadly Heat”

Might the severe risk posed by hurricanes become worse if they increasingly link with deadly heatwaves? As global temperatures rise, individual climate-driven hazards might become more intense or frequent. But, perhaps our concern should focus on entirely new or unrecognized risks caused by combinations of two or more hazards [e.g. Hillier et al, 2015], which may … Continue reading PhD opportunity “Deadly Climate Hazards Combined: Tropical Cyclones and Deadly Heat”
