Special Issue "Assessment, Simulations, and Prediction of Climate Extremes"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2023 | Viewed by 755
The world is living through climate change, and some of that evidence comes from computer models, from improved physical understanding of various planetary processes, and from direct observations of the way in which the world has changed thus far. A wide range of climate extreme events have occurred, causing deep global concern. Some typical examples of such events are the European heatwaves in 2010, 2015, 2017, and 2019; the Amazon droughts in 2010; the UK storm in early 2014; the extremely heavy rainfall in China in 2021; and the flood in Pakistan in 2022. What is more, the rarer the event, the higher the likelihood that it will become more frequent under the condition of continuous temperature rise in the future.
The Sixth Assessment Report of the IPCC warns that, even at 1.5 °C warming, we will witness climate extreme events, such as heavy rainfalls, floods, heatwaves, droughts, etc., that are more severe than any that have been observed before. This is true at a global level as well as a regional one. Climate extremes will probably become more variable within seasons, years, and regions. Assessment, simulations, and prediction of climate extremes play a crucial role in understanding and mitigating the impacts of climate change.
For this Special Issue, we welcome papers that focus on the assessment, simulations, and prediction of climate extremes. Contributions include but are not limited to:
- Drought and flood assessment, simulations, and predictions
- New modelling approaches of climate extremes
- Climate extremes modelling using big data or multisource data
- Uncertainties in modelling and prediction of climate extremes

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Atmosphere is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
