Recent spatiotemporal patterns in temperature extremes across conterminous United States
(Journal of Geophysical Research: Atmospheres, 2015)
With a warming climate, understanding the physical dynamics of hot and cold extreme events has taken on increased importance for public health, infrastructure, ecosystems, food security, and other domains. Here we use a ...
The Effect of Land Cover/Land Use Changes on the Regional Climate of the USA High Plains
We present the detection of the signatures of land use/land cover (LULC) changes on the regional climate of the US High Plains. We used the normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) as a proxy of LULC changes and ...
Mapping evaporative water loss in desert passerines reveals an expanding threat of lethal dehydration
Extreme high environmental temperatures produce a variety of consequences for wildlife, including mass die-offs. Heat waves are increasing in frequency, intensity, and extent, and are projected to increase further under ...
