Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Appreciating, identifying, and predicting the signatures of climate change impacts have beyond doubt been regarded as one of the most urgent topics in contemporary climatic studies. To date, a number of attempts have been reported to apply existing quantitative methods for elucidating the underlying mechanism of the impacts. Typical examples are given as detrended fluctuation analysis, variationally optimized Markov analysis, Monte Carlo, wavelet transformations, multifractals, information-theoretic analysis, multiscale entropy, statistical linguistics, convergent cross mapping, Mahalanobis distance metrics, singular spectral analysis, Lyapunov method, Minkowski distance functions, vectorial rotations, and stochastic resonances. With this trend in mind, we are now in the best position to integrate interdisciplinary efforts as an organic whole.

The present Special Issue aims at compiling, integrating, and organizing statistical approaches to the time-series climatic data that are represented not only with temperatures and precipitations, but also with humidities, air pressures, wind velocities, sea levels, and ice thicknesses.  

Both original and review articles, which deal with such transdisciplinary attempts as sharing a methodology with physiologists and economists as well as with electronics, information, and communication engineers, are welcome but approaches in which one can find a special novelty for the analysis of time-dependent climatic data are welcome as well.

Changes in climatic conditions increase risks associated with crop production in certain regions. Early detection of these changes enables the implementation of suitable adaptation measures in the local area, thereby stabilising agricultural production. Our analysis shows a significant shift in climatic conditions in Czechia between 1961 and 2020. We examined the changes in observed temperature conditions, precipitation distribution, drought occurrences, and frost incidents at a high resolution (0.5 × 0.5 km). The outputs show a significant increase in air temperatures and drought occurrence. Temperature totals above 5 °C in 1991–2020 were 15% higher than in 1961–1990. Furthermore, the relative change in totals above 10 °C was 26% after 1991. Over the last 30 years, drought incidence was four times more frequent than in 1961–1990, particularly in spring. In contrast, no significant changes in the distribution of precipitation occurred, and there was a slight decrease in the probability of frost during the growing season. Ongoing climate change brings warmer and drier conditions to higher-altitude regions in Czechia. Assessing climatic conditions on a global scale is less precise for relatively small and topographically diverse countries like Czechia due to coarse resolution. Therefore, a high-resolution analysis is more appropriate for these countries. Full article
