Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Society is exposed to numerous consequences due to the changes in the environment. As a result of these changes, there are a number of processes that directly or indirectly threaten the life and health of the population. Of particular importance are extreme hydrometeorological phenomena, the effects of which are felt in various regions of the world. These include floods, droughts, hot days, torrential rainfall and strong winds. The problem of the impact of changes in hydrometeorological phenomena has been widely discussed in the literature, especially for areas where conditions are unfavorable or where large areas were affected. Increasingly, unfavorable hydrometeorological phenomena are affecting small areas in the temperate climate zone, which contribute to the deterioration of the living conditions of the population. In this Special Issue, we want to draw more attention to the problem of changes in hydrometeorological conditions in connection with changes and health threats (including suicide) in local terms, and the possibilities of adapting to these changes.
