Research brief: The importance of humidity in heat stress

The key measures are the “Wet Bulb Globe Temperature” often used to screen for dangerous heat at sporting events and in workplaces, the “Wet Bulb Temperature” beloved of weather geeks, and “Apparent Temperature” quoted to the public by weather services. The bottom line is that the closer we are pushed to our physiological limits by extreme heat, the more important humidity becomes.

However, the models disagreed about the trends of sea ice volume.
