Extreme Heat Workshop

July 10, 2024 - July 12, 2024
9:00 AM - 5:00 PM
The Forum at Columbia University, 601 W. 125th St., New York, NY 10027

Extreme heat is a widely studied climate hazard, yet recent record-breaking heat waves have affected communities across the world and damaged critical infrastructure, cost human lives, and negatively affected public health and agriculture.

The Extreme Heat Workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners from multiple disciplines to assess and advance the state of knowledge on the mechanisms of concurrent, compounding, and record-breaking heat extremes; to identify community needs; and to develop an interdisciplinary framework for evaluating their risks on sectors including public health, energy, and agriculture, with a cross-cutting focus on climate justice.
