Implications of climate change for expanding cities worldwide

Article English OPEN
Hunt, Julian C.; Timoshkina, Yulia V.; Bohnenstengel, Sylvia I.; Belcher, Stephen;

This paper analyses the trends of the changing environmental effects within growing megacities as their diameters\ud exceed 50–100 km and their populations rise beyond 30 million people. The authors consider how these effects are\ud influenced by climate change, to whic... View more
