Building local capacity for heat hazard mitigation and climate change
Track: Atmosphere, Climate, and Weather
Authors: Olga Wilhelmi
Extreme heat is a leading cause of weather-related human mortality world-wide. In this presentation, we will discuss integrated modeling of urban extreme heat risk. We will demonstrate an ArcGIS online application that is aimed at communicating complex, multidisciplinary concepts of urban heat vulnerability to stakeholders and aid in public health interventions and climate change adaptations. Stakeholder feedback, challenges and opportunities will be discussed.
