An interdisciplinary panel of scientists presents an overview of the record-breaking heatwave of June/July 2021 and the impacts on BC. We cover: the synoptic conditions and weather forecasting of the event (Greg West, BC Hydro); the role of large-scale dynamics and climate change (Rachel White, EOAS); and the impacts of the event on forest fires (Chris Rodell, EOAS), glaciers (Christina Draeger, EOAS) and human health (Kate Weinberger, UBC School of Population and Public Health).
