Special Edition on Research on Extreme Weather Events that occurred around East Asia in 2017-2021
Chief Editor: Shingo Shimizu
Call for papers (in English): PDF file
Catastrophic disasters triggered by mesoscale convective systems and typhoons occur every year in East Asia. Especially in 2019 and 2020, a large number of casualties and
severe residential and agricultural damages were reported due to the record-breaking rainfall amount or severe wind speed in Japan. Although many papers have been
published in the special edition/collection of JMSJ/SOLA “Extreme Rainfall Events in 2017 and 2018”, extreme weather events have occurred after 2018. Our further
understanding of those physical processes and dynamical mechanisms that cause those extreme rainfall events is still in great need. Therefore, we welcome papers to study
properties or mechanisms of these recent extreme weather events based on observational analysis, statistical data analysis, and weather forecasting including data assimilation. The
special edition also accepts papers on studies of recent extreme events with heavy snowfall or extreme warm temperatures.
