Abstract


Djibouti City, Djibouti is known as one of the hottest inhabited locations in the world. The future warmer climate is expected to increase the existing risk levels associated with the heat waves in Djibouti City. However, to the best of our knowledge, there is insufficient information about the heat waves in Djibouti City. In this study, the grades of the historical heat waves in Djibouti City were analyzed. The present results showed that the heat waves mainly appeared from early June to late September in Djibouti City, and the medium-heavy or heavy heat waves lasting more than a month often began in late June, early July and early August. These findings will lay a foundation for evaluating the heat wave hazard and risks in Djibouti City in the future.
