Abstract

During Kuwait City's period of rapid population growth, summertime maximum temperatures have increased by nearly 1°C while minimum temperatures have decreased slightly; atmospheric moisture levels, as depicted by the dew point and relative humidity, have decreased sharply. As a result, all of the summertime weather stress indices used in the study have decreased during the period of recent population growth. -from Authors
