Special Issue "Climate Events and Extreme Weather"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 July 2020.
Interests: synoptic climatology; extreme weather events; atmosphere circulation; climate spatial analyses; climate change in recent centuries
Extreme weather events become one of the most important topics in meteorology and climatology in recent years. This is related, beyond any doubt, to their frequent disastrous effects, both environmentally and socioeconomically. Regarding current possibilities for their detection, with remote sensing techniques and systems above all, meteorological extremes have been permanently monitored and have become a bit easier to forecast. This monitoring should also contribute to early warning systems.
Regardless, the nature of weather extremes seems to be fascinating, including the scale, plot, and their atmospheric and environmental origins. It usually refers to extremes of different spatial and temporal scale, especially thermal, precipitation or anemological events. In many areas, it could also be limited to the others like fog, deposits, thunderstorms, snow cover, etc.
The following topics concerning weather and climate extremes are preferable, but other related problems are also welcome:
(1) Criteria and indices of meteorological extremes and their evaluation in different spatial and temporal scales;
(2) Circulation and other determinants of events;
(3) Long-term variability and changes;
(4) Challenges in forecasting;
(5) Social and economic impacts.

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 papers will be 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 1500 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.
