Announcing a Special Issue on Managing Nonlinear Climate Risk

leave a comment »

I am guest editor for a Special Issue on “The Implications of Nonlinear, Complex System Behaviour for Managing Changing Climate Risk” that will appear in the MDPI AG journal Atmosphere. Researchers, policymakers and practitioners are invited to submit a paper for consideration to this special issue.

With the IPCC Sixth Assessment Report in its early stages, there is a very limited literature on managing the risk of nonlinear climate change on decadal timescales, yet nonlinear change poses a much greater risk than gradual change. If climate change on decision-making timescales proves to be fundamentally nonlinear, as we maintained in a paper published earlier this year, there will be a substantial gap in the assessment. This special issue invites submissions on all aspects of the implications of nonlinear climate change for risk management, from theory through to practice.
