Hydroclimatic extremes have severe consequences in all aspects of human life often causing humanitarian, environmental, and financial disasters. Modern societies attempt to defend against climatic hazards through infrastructure development, efficient resource management, and adaptation plans. Such protection strategies can only be effective if they are based-on the state-of-the-art science on likelihood, extent and uncertainty of climatic hazards and their impacts. Uncertainties are particularly high when considering future climate change and variability, potentially affecting both the magnitude and the frequency of extreme events.
This virtual special issue aims to collect original research papers focusing on extreme events including precipitation, flooding, drought, heatwave, wind, surge, sea levels, or combinations of relevant events, that advance the scientific knowledge in the following areas:
- Stochastic and physically-based modelling and forecasting of extremes.
- Diagnostics of anthropogenic change and natural variability at any spatiotemporal scale.
- Frameworks for detecting and modelling compound and concurrent hydrologic extremes.
- Probabilistic methods (stationary and non-stationary) for frequency analysis.
- GCM-based projections, spatiotemporal downscaling techniques and attribution methods.
