Modeling and Mitigation Measures for Managing Extreme Hydrometeorological Events Under a Warming Climate focuses on existing knowledge by providing the current status of the most recent computational tools, modeling frameworks, and critical data analysis. Extreme climate events, primarily floods and droughts, have had major consequences in terms of loss of life and property around the world. The worst aspect is that, as a result of recent climate change consequences, the severity and frequency of extreme events is increasing. Managing extreme occurrences, reducing their effects, and establishing adaption strategies require significant policy and planning improvements. The development of computer models for this project is intended to provide a variety of solutions as well as several scenario analyses. Modeling and Mitigation Measures for Managing Extreme Hydrometeorological Events Under a Warming Climate relates the state of the art of the literature, recent advanced modeling approaches, and fundamental ideas and concepts to deliver more comprehensive information. This also outlines the way forward to conduct further research.
