Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
The increasing frequency of tropical-cyclone damage has attracted public interest regarding the impact of global warming on tropical cyclone activity. Although the global mean temperature has been rising since the 20th century, the detection and attribution of any climate change in tropical cyclone activity remains uncertain due to the limited length of reliable observations. A number of previous studies reported projected future changes in tropical cyclone frequency. However, there still remains substantial uncertainty regarding future changes in tropical cyclone activity and its impact.
Publications in the Special Issue will aim to minimize uncertainty in the possible future changes in tropical cyclone activity. Individual papers solicited for this Special Issue shall focus on the following topics:
- Quantifying change in the characteristics of tropical cyclones in a warmer climate;
- Observed climate change in tropical cyclone activity;
- Assessing tropical cyclone risks, mitigations, and adaptations for the future climate change;
- Assessing potential future changes in impact tropical cyclones in oceans (e.g., marine biochemistry; marine ecosystem; storm surges; sea level rise);
- Theoretical or experimental study related to tropical cyclone climate.
