Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
The field of tourism climatology continues to develop with increased government and private sector interest in improving climate services and climate change adaptation in the tourism sector. This Special Issue explores the multiple and complex interrelationships between weather and climate and the tourism sector; including approaches to the evaluation and measurement of climate resources for tourism; weather information use by tourists and tourism operators; improving climate services for the tourism sector; the influence of weather, forecasts, and climate variability on tourism demand and operations; tourist behavioral responses to weather and implications for visitor experience and destination reputation; and how changes in climate could alter tourism demand, as well as operational costs and sustainability.
