Extended Data Figure 3

ac, Normalized composite mean growing season temperature for extreme heat (n = 32) (a) and drought (n = 222) (b), and total precipitation for drought (c). Box plots depict the distributions of 1,000 false-disaster control composites, with red crosses denoting extreme outliers and red dashes denoting medians. Years with extreme heat correspond to seasonal temperature anomalies of 1.2 °C, while drought years have only 0.15 °C warmer temperatures, with no significant precipitation anomaly.
