Potentially Extreme Population Displacement and Concentration in the Tropics Under Non-Extreme Warming [Scientific Reports]

par Frédéric Magné - publié le

Evidence increasingly suggests that as climate warms, some plant, animal, and human populations may move to preserve their environmental temperature. The distances they must travel to do this depends on how much cooler nearby surfaces temperatures are. Because large-scale atmospheric dynamics constrain surface temperatures to be nearly uniform near the equator, these displacements can grow to extreme distances in the tropics, even under relatively mild warming scenarios.(...)
