6th International Summit on Hurricanes and Climate Change: From Hazard to Impact

The challenge to society from extreme events continually increases with coastal population growth and sea level rise. The 6th Summit provides an opportunity for in-depth presentations and discussions focused on quantifying the hazard, vulnerability and impact of hurricanes and the influence of climate change. In particular, we seek contributions that consider the use of physically-based models and focus on risk assessment. Submissions may focus on modern, past, or future climate states.

This Summit builds on five previous workshops on the general topic of hurricanes and climate, but departs from them by focusing on the pathway from hazard to impact. The goal of the Summit is to present state-of-the art research, identify specific outstanding research questions, and address what is needed to help bring the fruits of research on hurricanes and climate to bear on quantitative risk assessment.

As with past summits, a book will be submitted to Springer after the Summit so you can consider a future chapter submission to this venue. We are hoping to get vol. 4 of Hurricanes and Climate Change to the publisher within a few months of the summit, and we will accepting submissions for consideration in this edition from March 1, so please plan accordingly. Submissions will be peer-reviewed.

The abstract submission & early registration deadline have expired.
