Special Issue "Climate Information and Climatic Risk Management"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 28 February 2020.
Interests: user engagement; climate change; drought; freshwater flooding; climate adaptation
Over the last decade, developing climate products based on user requirements to address complex natural resource management issues and evaluate climate risk has taken on a more visible role in the climate arena. Such products can help users to explore the frequency and distribution of extreme events historically, how they may be changing in the future, and what climate adaptation and mitigation strategies have been the most successful in minimizing their impacts. This Special Issue of Atmosphere focuses on climate information and climatic risk management. We seek research studies that examine user engagement strategies for disseminating and improving climate information, adaptation decision-making, and ways in which sectors (e.g., agriculture, energy, and water resources) are applying climatic information to manage future risk. Both observational and modeling approaches are welcome. Manuscripts may also focus on the impacts of climate change as it relates to mitigating risk, including rainfall and associated flooding, drought, large waves, extreme heat and/or cold, tropical cyclones, and tornadoes. We welcome manuscripts that incorporate data from paleoclimatological investigations in future scenarios under changing climatic conditions. We also wish to include studies that examine the societal benefits of applying climate information and engaging with people and the environment. This includes risk communication and evacuation, vulnerability and recovery, and impacts to ecosystems, infrastructure, and health.Mr. Michael Kruk
