Researcher seeks input from emergency managers on study that will improve understanding of heat wave events

Researchers from Michigan State University and the University of Alabama are conducting research into heat waves spatial patterns. The study is titled “Spatiotemporal Dynamics of Heat Waves Across the United States” and it is funded by the National Science Foundation. The goal of the project is to get a better understanding of these deadly events and help improve the ability to predict and model their impacts. Part of the research includes a short survey to gather more in-depth information on how heat waves are defined by state climatologists, forecasters, and emergency managers. The information provided on heat wave definitions will remain confidential and names will not be associated with responses. Emergency managers may help by taking the survey now.
