Changes in Impacts of Climate Extremes: Human Systems and Ecosystems

Chapter


Abstract


  • Extreme impacts can result from extreme weather and climate events, but can also occur without extreme

    events. This chapter examines two broad categories of impacts on human and ecological systems, both of which are

    influenced by changes in climate, vulnerability, and exposure: first, the chapter primarily focuses on impacts that

    result from extreme weather and climate events, and second, it also considers extreme impacts that are triggered by

    less-than-extreme weather or climate events. These two categories of impacts are examined across sectors, systems,

    and regions. Extreme events can have positive as well as negative impacts on ecosystems and human activities.
