Weather and Climate Extremes

Submission status
Submission deadline

Weather and climate extremes have become more frequent and more intense under anthropogenic climate change. Such extremes have broad implications on a multitude of sectors, ranging from human health and social (in)justice to biodiversity and ecosystem loss. Further, many of those impacts are felt disproportionately by the most disadvantaged populations of our planet, for example those in regions of the Global South, where data and research gaps further contribute to the inequality. In this Collection, Nature Communications and Communications Earth & Environment welcome submissions on all types of weather and climate extremes, with a special focus, but not exclusively, on the Global South. Case studies, methodological approaches, impact studies, and also studies on the natural and anthropogenic drivers of weather and climate extremes will be considered.
