Weather and Climate in Monsoon Regions

Description

Monsoon regions feed about 70% percent of the world’s population. The weather and climate variability in these regions often lead to natural hazards, such as flooding, droughts, heat waves, and blizzards, which exert strong impacts on both the society and the human lives. Therefore, the monsoon research has traditionally held a very high priority for the weather and climate international scientific communities. It is also an urgent task for the scientific community to gain a deeper understanding of the monsoon variability to meet the rising demand of a better weather forecast and climate prediction.

We invite authors to submit original papers and review articles to improve the knowledge on the weather and climate variability in monsoon regions such as Asia, Australia, Africa, and America. Timescales of interest range from synoptic to intraseasonal, interannual, interdecadal, and climate change. We are particularly interested in articles describing observations, dynamics, predictability, and future projections of global and regional monsoons.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • New observational facts and phenomena of global/regional monsoon
  • Case studies or statistical studies on severe weather and climate extremes in monsoon regions
  • Dynamics and thermodynamics of monsoon variability on various timescales
  • Impacts of atmospheric teleconnections on monsoon variability
  • Multispherical interactions and its role in monsoon variability
  • Predictability and prediction schemes of global/regional monsoon on interannual and decadal timescales
  • Historical simulations or future projections of regional/global monsoon
