Description

This study uses new modeling and climate simulations to study climate change analysis using the IPCC Special Report on Emission Scenarios. Results indicate that California cities will see increases in the number of heat wave and temperature threshold days from two to six times. This is a state-funded research study sponsored by the California Energy Commission.
