Princeton researchers discovered a way to accurately project extreme heat in the tropics under climate change — while better accounting for the point at which heat endangers human health — by looking at the atmospheric dynamics that control the region’s “wet-bulb” temperature, a combination of heat and humidity.

A recent analysis of the latest generation of climate models — known as a CMIP6 — provides a cautionary tale on interpreting climate simulations as scientists develop more sensitive and sophisticated projections of how the Earth will respond to increasing levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
