Vietnam is one of the countries strongly affected by climate change. The reports of the Vietnam Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (2009, 2012) also confirmed that natural disasters have been more complex and extreme. The extreme events related to drought also have been increasing. Therefore, understanding the impacts of climate change at regional and national scales relating to extreme events is critical and urgent. This study used the regional climate model Hadgem3_RA to extract factors related to extreme temperature to establish thematic maps over Vietnam. The aim of the article is to provide the potential to establish extreme temperature map to serve climate change adaptation and mitigation.
