Numerous climate change extremes have devastating impacts on human societies, societal and physical infrastructure and the natural environment.
This Special Issue aims to explore, analyze and discuss various impacts of climate change on social communities, public health, environmental and ecological systems, and/or infrastructures from scientific perspectives, through earth and community observation data. We invite you to contribute to this issue by submitting comprehensive reviews, case studies, or research articles that focus on scientific methods and innovative statistical analyses. Please feel free to inform us about your tentative paper title upon your interest and prior to your final submission.
