Special Issue "Applications of Mathematical/Statistical Techniques to Extreme Events"

Extreme events (such as flooding, droughts, heatwaves, cyclones, wildfires, earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions) occur randomly in nature and are of high importance. Growing scientific evidence indicates that it is becoming increasingly likely that the frequency, intensity, severity, duration, temporal ranges, and spatial extent of extreme events will change considerably in response to future climate change. The Special Issue “Applications of Mathematical/Statistical Techniques to Extreme Events” of Geosciences invites original research articles, review papers, experimental work, case studies, and technical notes that feature novel applications of novel mathematical/statistical techniques for the analysis, visualisation, modelling, and forecasting of extreme events.

Wider topics covering the application of mathematical/statistical approaches can include the following (though not limited to):

1. Extreme events and projections of future climate change;
2. Risk assessment/management for extreme events;
3. Big data for extreme events;
4. Clustering/cascading effects of extreme events;
5. Socioeconomic impacts of extreme events, such as on critical infrastructures, the environment, longevity, pollution, and health and safety.
