Call for Papers-Special Issue on "Storms, Jets and Other Meteorological Phenomena in Coastal Seas" of the journal ATMOSPHERE

Added by delei li about 4 years ago

Dear all,

This is a call for papers for the Special Issue on “Storms, Jets and Other Meteorological Phenomena in Coastal Seas” of the journal ATMOSPHERE, which I think may interest to some of you. I apologize for any inconvenience this post may cause to you.

The Call for paper reads: Coastal regions are featured by high population densities and high levels of develop-ment, especially in the 21st century. However, properties, life and environment in coastal regions are greatly threatened by coastal hazards, which is, in most cases, caused by coastal meteorological events. This Special Issue aims to collect current state-of-the-art studies on the statistics and the changes of hazardous regional meteorological events in coastal regions, in particular meso-scale and synoptic scale storms (polar lows, Mediterranean cyclones including medicanes, Australian east coastlows, and tropical and midlattude baroclinic storms) and coastal low-level jets. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
(1) Analyses of the frequency and characteristics of regional meteorologicalevents based on observation data, re-analyses and simulations, both regionally and globally;
(2) Identification of links between low-frequency large-scale atmospheric configurations and the tendency for generating such regional phenomena;
(3) Historical and future climate changes in coastal meteorological events;
(4) Changes in ocean states, such as waves and storm surges related to coastal meteorological events;
(5) Risks and impact assessment of such phenomena for human activities and coastal environment.
