Special Issue "Tropical Cyclones and Their Impacts"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 May 2018).
On an annual basis, tropical cyclones affect thousands of people. Efforts of physical scientists are needed to help improve our ability to predict the location, intensity, and extent of these systems and their impacts, while the work of social scientists is vital to better communicate warning messages, assess risk and evaluate strategies for recovery after the event. This Special Issue of Atmosphere focuses on tropical cyclones. We seek research studies that examine tropical cyclones in all ocean basins from formation to dissipation, including interactions with the surrounding atmosphere and underlying ocean and/or land surface. Both observational and modeling approaches are welcomed. Manuscripts may also focus on the impacts of these systems such as rainfall and associated flooding, storm surge and coastal erosion, and/or wind-related damage including tornadoes. We invite manuscripts incorporating data from paleoclimatological investigations to future scenarios under changing climatic conditions. We also wish to include studies that examine the impacts of tropical cyclones on people and the environment. This may include risk communication and evacuation, vulnerability and recovery, and impacts to ecosystems, infrastructure, and health.
