Submit an article
Last updated:

Many natural hazards result in devastating human disasters, highlighting our vulnerability to extreme events around the world. The prospects of predicted changes in the frequency, intensity, and spatial extent of climate extremes have alerted us to a future of our well-being in a warming world. Though the literature on natural hazards is rich and thriving, we need more in-depth research and inter-disciplinary collaboration to reduce the impacts of extreme events, build more resilient communities, and prevent natural hazards from escalating into disasters.

Earth’s Future welcomes submissions to this thematic issue on conceptual, numerical, statistical and empirical approaches related to all natural and human-induced hazards such as droughts, floods, volcanoes, tsunamis, earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, and wildfires and from all areas of Earth sciences.
