Hazard Indices Overview

Our Hazard Indices provide a suite of tools designed to assess climate-related risks. Each index delivers critical insights into various environmental stress factors that can impact human health, agriculture, ecosystems, and infrastructure.

Projected Atmospheric Phenomena (2015-2100):

  • Temperature Waves: Gauge periods of extreme temperatures, both hot and cold, that could influence health, ecosystems, and infrastructure.

  • Precipitation Stress: Examine changes in precipitation patterns and potential stress due to variability, contributing to flood and drought risk assessments.

  • Thermal Stress: Assess human-perceived temperature extremes influenced by climate change, using indices like Humidex and Windchill.
