Table 7.

Extreme-event projections. For heat and cold events, shown is the central range (middle 67%) of values from model-based distributions, on the basis of 16 GCMs and three emissions scenarios. For coastal floods and storms, shown is the central range (middle 67%) of values from model-based distributions, on the basis of seven GCMs and three emissions scenarios. Decimal places are shown for values of <1 (and for all flood heights). A heat wave is defined as three or more consecutive days with maximum temperature exceeding 90°F (~32°C).
