Climate change is the biggest global threat of the 21st century. As key indicators of climate change, extreme precipitation and temperature events have significantly increased worldwide in recent years, which have caused widespread impacts on human health, societies, economies, and ecosystems. For instance, extreme rainfall hit Henan Province in Central China in 2021; from London to Shanghai, unprecedented heat waves have scorched many parts of the world this summer. With accelerated global warming, temperature extremes and heavy precipitation are expected to intensify and become more frequent. Therefore, the causes that led to these unprecedented events, the occurrence of compound precipitation and temperature events, and future changes in and risks of extreme precipitation as well as temperature need to be further investigated based on the newly released CMIP6 simulations, downscaling techniques, machine learning, and risk assessment models.
This Special Issue aims to gather new innovative results on the characteristics, mechanisms, future changes, and risk assessment of temperature extremes and heavy precipitation on regional and global scales. The primary goal is to improve our knowledge and understanding of extreme precipitation and temperature in a changing climate in addition to providing scientific bases for disaster risk management and climate change adaptation. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Mechanisms of extreme precipitation and temperature events;
- Detection and attribution of changes in extreme precipitation and temperature;
- Numerical simulations of extreme precipitation and temperature;
- Observed and projected changes in extreme precipitation and temperature;
- Prediction and early warning of extreme precipitation and temperature;
- Impacts of extreme precipitation and temperature on socioeconomic and human health;
- Risk assessment of extreme precipitation and temperature under climate change.

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.
