ERL 2017 Highlights: Herold et al.

Congratulations to Nick Herold, Lisa Alexander, Donna Green and Markus Donat, whose paper Greater increases in temperature extremes in low versus high income countries was featured in the 2017 Research Highlights for Environmental Research Letters!

The global problem of climate change poses the greatest threat to the poorest countries, despite their least contribution to greenhouse gas emissions. This study shows that these lowest income countries are already (since a decade) experiencing greater increases in the occurrence of temperature extremes compared to the highest income countries. 

You can also find the paper, which is Open Access, on our Resources page.
