Climate Change and Extreme Events uses a multidisciplinary approach to discuss the relationship between climate change-related
weather extremes and their impact on human lives. Topics discussed are grouped into four major sections: weather parameters,
hydrological responses, mitigation and adaptation, and governance and policies, with each addressed with regard to past, present
and future perspectives. Sections give an overview of weather parameters and hydrological responses, presenting current knowledge
and a future outlook on air and stream temperatures, precipitation, storms and hurricanes, flooding, and ecosystem responses
to these extremes. Other sections cover extreme weather events and discuss the role of the state in policymaking.
This book provides a valuable interdisciplinary resource to climate scientists and meteorologists, environmental researchers,
and social scientists interested in extreme weather.
