Australia's Unprecedented Future Temperature Extremes Under Paris Limits to Warming

Lewis, Sophie; King, Andrew D.; Mitchell, Daniel M


Record-breaking temperatures can detrimentally impact ecosystems, infrastructure, and human health. Previous studies show that climate change has influenced some observed extremes, which are expected to become more frequent under enhanced future warming. Understanding the magnitude, as well as frequency, of such future extremes is critical for limiting detrimental impacts. We focus on temperature changes in Australian regions, including over a major coral reef-building area, and assess the...[Show more]
