    Scientific interest in weather and climate extremes has exploded in recent years. Extreme events such as hurricanes, heatwaves, storm, flood and drought have always had disproportionate impacts. Due to global warming, significant changes in the frequency and intensity of weather/climate extremes are occurring. The goal of this special issue is to provide a platform for scientists and academicians all over the world to promote, share, and discuss various new issues and developments in this area of extreme weather and climate.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on exploring extreme weather and climate. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:


    • Observed/projected changes in weather/climate extremes
    • Monitoring and early warning systems
    • Assessment of vulnerability and impacts
    • Developing and implementing intervention policies
    • Effective risk management and adaptation practices


    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.
