"Advances in Meteorology" monsoon special issue calls for papers
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:
Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal’s Author Guidelines, which are located at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/amete/guidelines/. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/submit/journals/amete/wcmr/ according to the following timetable:
