Special Issue "Characteristics of Extreme Climate Events over China"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 10 May 2024 | Viewed by 1413
In the context of global warming, increasing numbers of extreme climate events are occurring in China, with amplifying intensity and expanding influence. Extreme climate events, such as the super Meiyu in 2020, the persistent rainfall in North China in autumn 2021, and the record-breaking high temperature and drought in the Yangtze River Basin in 2022, have had a significant impact on agricultural production and social economy, and have even posed a large threat to people's lives and property. Therefore, it has become necessary to analyze the characteristics and understand the causes of these anomalous climates and extreme events over China. Documenting and explaining the most significant extreme climate events are vital to improve scientific understanding of the fast-evolving climate, and to provide the public and policymakers with timely, peer-reviewed, authoritative scientific information.
Therefore, the main objective of this Special Issue is to contribute to our understanding of extreme climate events over China and to provide science-based knowledge and novel approaches to predict extreme events in terms of subseasonal-to-seasonal timescales. We encourage authors to share their opinions, knowledge, and achievements regarding the characteristics, mechanisms, predictability, and prediction methods of extreme events and the influence of human activities and future projection. New methods of measurements and detection of extreme events, such as the use of satellite data or deep learning methods to identify and forecast extreme events, are also encouraged. In particular, the following topics are of great interest:
- Multi-scale characteristics of extreme climate events;
- Mechanisms of extreme climate events;
- Predictability and prediction methods;
- Trends of extreme climate events and their interaction with human activities;
- Use of deep learning methods to identify and forecast extreme climate events.
