Projected changes in annual number of very hot days
This figure appears in chapter 3 of the Climate Change Global Food Security and the U.S. Food System report.
Mid (left) and late (right) 21st-century changes are compared to the 1986–2005 baseline under the low-emissions (RCP 2.6, top) and high-emissions (RCP 8.5, bottom) scenarios. Multimodel ensemble-mean changes are shown where gray dashes indicate areas where changes are small (less than one standard deviation) compared to natural variability. Very hot days are when maximum daily temperatures are above the 90th percentile of current climatology. Source: This figure was produced using CMIP5 model output through the web application “Climate Explorer,”.
