Interests: air–sea interaction; climate dynamics; extreme weather and climate events
Seasonal weather and climate extreme events, such as hurricanes, heatwaves, droughts, and floods, can have a significant impact on society and the environment. In recent years, we have seen an increase in the frequency and intensity of such events, which can lead to significant economic losses, social disruption, and environmental damage. Understanding the underlying mechanisms that drive these events and improving our ability to forecast them is critical for effective planning and management.
The goal of this Special Issue is to bring together research on the latest advances in understanding and forecasting seasonal weather and extreme climate events. We seek to showcase original research, review papers, and perspectives on the role of climate variability and change in driving these events, advanced statistical and dynamical modeling techniques for predicting them, and the mechanisms that lead to their development and intensification. In addition, we aim to explore the impacts of these events on human health, agriculture, and ecosystems, as well as the climate services and decision-making tools that can support adaptation and mitigation strategies in the face of such extreme events.
This Special Issue welcomes original research, review papers, and perspectives on the following topics:
- The role of climate variability and change in driving seasonal weather and climate extreme events.
- Advanced statistical and dynamical modeling techniques for predicting seasonal weather and climate extreme events.
- Understanding the mechanisms that lead to the development and intensification of seasonal weather and climate extreme events.
- Impacts of seasonal weather and climate extreme events on human health, agriculture, and ecosystems.
- Climate services and decision-making tools to support adaptation and mitigation strategies in the face of seasonal weather and climate extreme events.

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).
