Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The changes that the climate has been undergoing around the world in recent decades are affecting our lives in many different ways. Drought, floods, and unusual cold and heat waves are occurring more frequently or in climatic regions that do not correspond to them. To cope with these changes, it is essential to know what effects they produce and to recognize in which areas these effects are most aggressive. A small change can be catastrophic in the most vulnerable areas, such as fire areas, mining areas, agricultural areas, or drought areas. Each change and each effect produced require specific studies with specific indicators that will change depending on the vulnerability of the area.

This Special Issue aims to present studies carried out in different areas and share the methodologies used in specific cases to calculate the influence of climate change and its effects both in the short and long term. In this way, knowledge and experience will be shared, helping the development of new technologies and the achievement of the goals proposed within the Sustainable Development Goals, specifically the adoption of urgent measures to combat climate change and its effects.
