Advancing Our Understanding of Extreme Events: Observations, Models, and Resilience

Extreme events such as floods, tropical cyclones, heat waves, and droughts have shown an alarming increase in frequency and intensity across the globe and now of serious concern due to their significant impact on socio-economic conditions. Hence extensive research efforts have been devoted to understanding the mechanisms, patterns, and characteristics of these extreme events.

This Article Collection aims to bring together cutting-edge research in this critical area of study. The primary objective of this Article Collection is to foster a comprehensive understanding of extreme events through a multidisciplinary approach, encompassing observational and numerical modeling studies.

We invite contributions that focus on, but not limited to:

Spatial and Temporal Characteristics:

Papers that investigate the spatial and temporal variations of extreme events, and their evolving patterns and trends.


Research aimed at enhancing our ability to predict the occurrence and severity of extreme events, thereby facilitating better preparedness and response strategies.

Physics and Dynamics:

Papers that explore the underlying physics and dynamics associated with extreme events, advancing our knowledge of their causes and mechanisms.

Regional-Scale Analysis:

Submissions providing regional-scale analyses of historical extreme events and projections. Such studies offer valuable insights for policymakers to develop more resilient societies capable of mitigating the impacts of extreme event-related disasters.

All manuscripts submitted to this Article Collection will undergo a full peer-review; the Guest Advisors for this collection will not be handling the manuscripts. Please review the journal scope and author submission instructions prior to submitting a manuscript.

The deadline for submitting manuscripts is 30th June 2024.

Please contact Alex Johnson at [email protected] with any queries regarding this Article Collection.
