Heat wave

2010-07-20

Queen’s University geography professor Harry McCaughey is available to discuss the heat wave sweeping across the country, and why Canadians should expect more extreme weather of both the hot and cold varieties.

“More heat waves, or more extreme temperatures, are consistent with future global climate projections in a changing climate,” says Professor McCaughey.

Dr. McCaughey is an expert in microclimatology and climactic change. He is a Principal Investigator for the Canadian Carbon Program, funded for the period 2007-2010, by the Canadian Foundation for Climate and Atmospheric Sciences (CFCAS). He was also a co-investigator in the Canadian Climate Research Network, Land Surface Processes Group (the CLASS Project).
