Fig. 2: Global maps of cumulative heat statistics.

From: Increasing trends in regional heatwaves

Fig. 2

The highest seasonal cumulative heat (sum of anomalies relative to the calendar-day 90th percentile) (a); the year in which this value occurs (b); decadal trends in the percentage change of cumulative heat (c) and heatwave days (d); the average anomaly of a heatwave day (e) and the respective decadal trend (f). All values are calculated for the global observational dataset Berkeley Earth, for 1950−2017.
