Hydrological and Meteorological Extreme Events in Asia: Understanding, Modeling, Vulnerability, and Adaptation Measures

Description

In Asia, a number of extreme events have occurred in recent decades due to climate change and due to the skyrocketing development of urban areas. The damage from those extreme events is hard to quantify. In the near future, the increase in global temperature might intensify such extreme events and their associated impacts over society.

The characteristics of extreme events across Asia are rather different from the rest of the world due to their higher frequency and the lack of adequate infrastructure in the region to mitigate and protect from those events. For example, in 2013 Typhoon Haiyan landed in the Philippines with wind speeds over 315 km/h and resulted in more than thousand casualties and two billion US dollars of economic damage. Last year, monsoon torrential rains flooded parts of Pakistan and India and caused massive mudslides with over two hundred casualties.

The understanding and modeling of such extreme events occurring in Asia as well as their possible connection with climate change must be reported and analyzed so that future trends can be noted appropriately to mitigate their impacts over society. Innovative technologies and methodologies to forecast and analyze climate extremes in the Asian region will be really helpful to water resources managers and flood control engineers.

Therefore, it is our privilege to invite those devoted scientists and engineers to report their experiences and analysis of extreme events as well as their future trends focused on the Asian region.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Monsoon rainfall and its impacts on urban and rural areas
  • Typhoon: modeling and forecasting its events with statistical and physical approaches
  • Rehabilitation from the damage of hydrometeorological extreme events
  • Description of current local issues from hydrometeorological extremes for their causes and future trends
  • Prediction and modeling of frequency, occurrence, and trend of extreme events connected with climate change
  • Analyzing and modeling of nonlinear relations between extreme events and climate variables, especially over the Indian and Pacific Oceans
  • Vulnerability and its mitigation plans of extreme events in coastal cities under climate change
  • Drought trends and changes in arid and semiarid Asian regions
  • Regional and nonstationary frequency analysis of extreme events (floods, droughts, wind speed, etc.)
  • Socioeconomic issues of extreme meteorological events in Asia
  • Spatial analysis of extreme climatic events
