Global warming causes a temperature rise and alteration of other
meteorological variables that directly or indirectly affect human comfort. The
wet bulb globe temperature (WBGT) incorporates the effects of multiple
meteorological variables to provide a reliable measure of human thermal stress.
Despite the large significance of WBGT on public health, studies related to
characterization and trends assessment of WBGT are limited in the tropical
humid region like Peninsular Malaysia due to the unavailability of all
meteorological variables required for such analysis. This study employed
reanalysis meteorological data of ERA5 to assess the characteristics and
changes in hourly, daily, monthly, seasonal and annual outdoor WBGT over
peninsular Malaysia for the period 1959–2021 using the Liljegren method.
