Special Issue Information
The overall goal of this Special Issue is to investigate and bring together the most recent experimental and modeling studies focused on a spatial and temporal variability of the extreme weather and climate events (e.g., windstorms and droughts, heat waves, floods, etc.), their prediction, and mitigation. Today, weather extremes are always at the top of the list of global risks in terms of likelihood and their impact on human activity and environments according to the Global Risks Report 2020 published by the World Economic Forum, because of their serious threat to global stability. It is obvious that the climate is changing, and with it, its extremes. Dealing with extreme weather and climate events is a challenge in terms of decision making under uncertainty and analyzing the response in the context of risk management. This is why research, applications, technology, and innovation in the field of weather and climate extremes, spanning from monitoring extreme events to their modeling, is needed now more than ever to mitigate and solve, in the long-term, this global issue and enable environment sustainability and economic growth.
For this Special Issue, we invite scientists working in meteorology, climatology, hydrology, ecology, economy, and sociology to contribute original research articles, as well as some reviews, dealing with extreme weather and climate events. Contributions can include but are not limited to understanding, modeling, and predicting weather and climate extremes in various spatial scales (from local to global), their possible impact on humans, and possible ways to mitigate the effects of extreme events and to reduce the damage they cause.

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 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs).
