Climate Change & Heat Stress Indicators: Exploring the relaxation of Tw

In this series of posts I am exploring the relaxation of the natural wet bulb temperature (Tw). This is the limiting step in the approximation of heat stress indicator wet bulb global temperature (WBGT), which is widely used to model the effects of temperature upon humans (Bernard and Pourmoghani (1999); Lemke and Kjellstron (2012)). In … Continue reading
