×K1. Understanding hydroclimatological extremes

Hydroclimatological extremes such as floods, drought, extreme precipitation, heat waves, or storm surge have disastrous consequences on the economy and society. Hence, it is important to be able to model and predict hydroclimatologic extremes, particularly in the face of the additional uncertainty from climatic change. We invite contributions from any field investigating the nature of hydroclimatologic extremes, particularly those aiming to simulate, predict, and understand hydroclimatologic extreme and reduce the related modeled uncertainty. Potential submissions include but are not limited to: simulations (stochastic, numerical, physical); novel datasets; assessment of regional and spatial dependencies; historical trend assessments; impact modelling/analysis; and approaches to quantify future changes.
