The maps show the number of summer days in Europe exceeding the apparent temperature (heat index) threshold of 40.7 °C as simulated by five ENSEMBLES Regional Climate Models for the IPCC SRES A1B emission scenario. The apparent temperature (often referred to as the heat index) represents heat stress on the human body by accounting for temperature
