Edith de Guzman Research Published in the International Journal of Biometeorology

Ph.D. researcher Edith de Guzman and colleagues found that roughly one in four lives currently lost during heat waves could be saved. They calculated how different tree cover and albedo scenarios would affect heat-related mortality, temperature, humidity, and oppressive air masses in Los Angeles, California, and calculated how many years climate change-induced warming could be delayed in Los Angeles if interventions were implemented: approximately 40-70 years under business-as-usual and moderate mitigation scenarios, respectively.
