Detection, Attribution, and Projection of Regional Extreme Weather and Climate Events in China
Special Issue on Detection, Attribution, and Projection of Regional Extreme Weather and Climate Events in China
(Abbreviated title: Extreme Weather and Climate in China)
Call for Papers
In recent years, the detection and attribution of extreme weather and climate events has been one of the most cutting-edge scientific issues in the field of climate change research. China has a vast territory and a large population density. The impacts caused by extreme weather and climate events are very serious. However, the current attribution research on major extreme events in China is far from satisfying the increasingly high demands of the public and government on the scientific community.
This special issue will concentrate on reporting the most recent research results from studies of heat waves, persistent heavy precipitation, drought, and related compound extreme events in China. The special issue aims to reflect some of the latest developments in research on regional extreme weather and climate events in China, contributing to promote the climate change research in China.
Papers for this special issue are solicited for, although not limited to, the following topics:
1. Detection and attribution methods suitable for regional extreme weather and climate events (including compound extreme events);
2. Distinguishing of the relative contributions of human activities and natural forcing to the changes of extreme events in China, based on multiple attribution methods and new sets of climate model simulation data;
3. Constraint projection of future changes in China's regional extreme events, based on the results of detection and attribution;
4. Research on the attribution of major extreme events in China in the past five years.
In support of the publication of this special issue, publication charges of innovative, well-written papers will be waived, pending on the scores and comments of the handling Editor/reviewers and the Responsible Editors Team of this special issue; and three best papers will be awarded with certificates and/or cash prizes. Contributions from both Chinese and overseas authors are well encouraged.
Submission open: May 31, 2021
Submission deadline: December 31, 2021
Publication time: As soon as the paper is accepted and edited. The Special Issue in virtual format will be compiled online and the Special Issue in print is available upon request.
