Caption: This image illustrates the projected relative exposure for each country given expected 21st century climate change and the estimated levels of poverty and wealth. Darkly shaded areas face a greater exposure to climate change. Purdue researchers and researchers at the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics in Trieste, Italy, have taken a first step toward quantifying the "socioclimatic" exposure of different countries to future climate change.
