Population exposure to hazardous weather under climate change
Project Description

Extreme temperature and cyclone pose severe threat to human beings, especially for residents in the urban environment. This project will focus on analyzing the magnitude and trend of heat/cold wave and cyclones for global metropolitan areas under climate change. By integrating population data with climate model outputs, the objective is to quantify the impacts of hazardous weather on human health.
