Special Issue "From Local to Global Precipitation Dynamics and Climate Interaction"
A special issue of Climate (ISSN 2225-1154).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2020).
Interests: physics of complex systems; information theory; nonlinear statistical physics; nonlinear dynamics; nonlinear statistics; fluid dynamical systems; climate dynamics; earth system dynamics; nonlinear geophysics; atmospheric physics
Interests: hydroclimate; precipitation extremes; spatial scaling; flood risk; climate tele-connections; bayesian learning; non-parametric models; persistent floods; reservoir management; land-atmoshpere processes
The Special Issue welcomes research on theoretical and applied aspects pertaining to the dynamics of precipitation and climate interactions, along with dynamical co-evolution, feedbacks, and synergies among underlying earth system processes across spatio–temporal scales.
The Special Issue further encourages discussion on transdisciplinary methods in mathematical, statistical, and computational physics, with applications to data analysis and dynamic modeling, in order to shed light on precipitation complexity and predictability, along with underlying geophysical mechanisms.
Works that focus on investigating physical causality and inference of regional precipitation regimes, transitions, extremes, and their climate interactions using statistical and dynamical frameworks are also welcome.
The methodological debate may range from traditional, nonlinear, dynamic, stochastic–dynamic, kinematic–geometric, and information–theoretical developments to emerging frameworks in mathematical physics addressing non-ergodic, thermodynamically unstable processes and interactions.
Contributions are welcome from a diverse community in meteorology, climatology, hydrology, and the broader physical geosciences, working with diverse approaches, ranging from dynamical modeling to data mining and analysis, with physical understanding in mind.

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. Climate 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 1400 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.
