Elsevier Announces The Launch Of A New Open Access Journal: Weather And Climate Extremes

AMSTERDAM, October 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced the launch of a new open access journal: Weather and Climate Extremes.

The decade ending in 2010 was an unprecedented era of climate extremes, evidenced by heat waves in Europe and Russia, droughts in the Amazon Basin, Australia and East Africa, and huge storms like Tropical Cyclone Nargis and Hurricane Katrina. Weather and Climate Extremes publishes research on improving forecasts and early warning systems and on managing such weather and climate extremes for academics, decision makers, international development agencies, nongovernmental organizations and for creating a resilient society.

"Extreme weather and climate events are demanding increased attention from the general public, policy makers, stakeholders in different economic sectors as well as the scientific community," said Dr. Mannava Sivakumar, appointed Editor-in-Chief of Weather and Climate Extremes and former Director, Climate Prediction and Adaptation Branch ( CLPA) at the World Meteorological Organization ( WMO).

"There is a critical need for understanding the nature of these events, and this new journal provides an ideal platform for centralizing international research and academic discussion on the topic."

"We are excited and proud to launch Weather and Climate Extremes offering a new platform for open access publishing of work in this important field of research," said Sandra Broerse, Publisher Ecology and Sustainability journals at Elsevier. "Papers published in the journal will improve our understanding of and mitigate risks related to weather extremes on a global scale."

With an international scope, the first issue of Weather and Climate Extremes includes research papers authored from Africa, Asia, Europe, and South America. Articles discuss the implications of community engagement in fire management in Botswana, methodologies to improve forecasting of extreme weather events based on the application in Germany, trend detection of droughts and their association to El Niño in Northern Chile, and using a drought monitoring index to improve understanding of frequency of multi-year droughts in India.

Weather and Climate Extremes will publish four open access issues annually which will be hosted online on ScienceDirect.

The first issue is now available, go to: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/22120947/1
