[Request for contribution] Special Issue “Extreme Weather Events: predictions, management, vulnerabilities of economic sectors and remote impacts”

Special Issue “Extreme Weather Events: predictions, management, vulnerabilities of economic sectors and remote impacts”

IMPREX lead researchers to act as guest editors for the Journal Atmosphere, Special Issue “Extreme Weather Events: predictions, management, vulnerabilities of economic sectors and remote impacts"

The special issue focuses on improving our understanding about vulnerabilities of our economic sectors to extreme weather events both now and under future (climate) conditions and topics of interests are:

  • Use and role of weather forecasting (e.g. short-term, seasonal) in the prediction and management of hydrological extremes;
  • Flood damage modelling and risk assessment;
  • Drought severity modelling, vulnerabilities and risk management;
  • (Remote) vulnerabilities of economic sectors to extreme weather events including teleconnections via international trade (imports and export, and virtual water trade);
  • Vulnerabilities to compound anomalies and extreme weather events,
  • (Remote) impacts of extreme weather events (including climate change) to economic sectors/regions via production losses, supply chain and imports of commodities;
  • (Remote) impacts of extreme weather events on food security, trade relations including assessment of trade shocks and failures and economic indicators (e.g. GDP, commodity prices)
