Europe emerges as an especially sensitive area to climate change with more frequent, longer and harsher summer heat waves. Temperature-Related Mortality (TRM) can be largely avoided if informed decisions are made prior to extreme climate events to protect vulnerable populations.
This case study aims to develop in collaboration with end-users a prototype forecast scheme of TRM for a very large ensemble of regions in Europe.
