Contrasting urban and rural heatwaves over the U.S.

Co-Author: Keith Oleson
I am interested in investigating the variability of heatwaves and extreme heat events over the U.S. for present-day and future climate with a focus on the differences between urban and rural areas. This project may become part of a larger collaboration with J.F. Lamarque and Claudia Tebaldi as part of the CGD Climate and Human Systems Project (CHSP) (still under discussion).
