Extreme urban heat – a serious threat in cities and a contemporary health hazard

In the context of climate change, heatwaves are among the most dangerous of natural hazards for public health and city landscapes. SLU Urban Futures is now launching an article series called ’Urban Heat’, that will run throughout the spring of 2024. In the first article we meet Professor Mark J Nieuwenhuijsen, Professor Anna Mavrogianni and Researcher Anders Larsson, and begin to examine the challenges connected to urban heat.
