This publication describes techniques for dynamic mitigation actions performed by a modem in response to a thermal situation. Dynamic mitigation actions can be completed by a modem after it receives a deadline time calculated by a caller (e.g., Application Programming Interface (API)) of the modem based on the thermal situation. The deadline time will represent how long the modem has to fully complete one or more mitigation action(s). The modem can decide the mitigation action timeline based off of the deadline time to allow for a better user experience. For example, if it is determined that the thermal situation is less critical (e.g., the temperature is increasing very slowly), a longer deadline time can be communicated from the API to allow the modem to slowly mitigate processes executing on the device. If it is determined that the thermal situation is more critical, the mitigation can be more aggressive with a shorter deadline time.
