1. A review of past changes in extratropical cyclones in the northern hemisphere and what can be learned for the future.

Extratropical cyclones, a major phenomenon of the mid-latitude atmospheric dynamics, show strong variability over a range of time scales. Future projections hint at an increase of cyclonic intensity and the associated precipitation, an important fact to be considered when developing future risk...

2. Using big data analytics to synthesize research domains and identify emerging fields in urban climatology.

The growing concerns over urbanization and climate change have resulted in an exponential growth in publications on urban climatology in recent decades. However, an advanced synthesis that characterizes the existing studies is lacking. In this review, we used citation network analysis and a text...

3. Complex causes of landslides after ice sheet retreat: post-LGM mass movements in the Northern Patagonian Icefield region.

Although the dynamics of individual rock-slope failures above recently shrinking glaciers have received increasing study, less is known about the spatial distribution of landslides in paraglacial settings. Here, we present a landslide inventory for large deglaciated area (~100,000 km2) situated...

4. Insight into the multi-decadal effects of floods on aquatic macroinvertebrate community structure in the Murray river using distributed lag nonlinear models and counterfactual analysis.

We describe the multi-decadal delayed effects of flood on macroinvertebrate community structure using 33 years of monitoring data on macroinvertebrates, water quality, and climate, and 51 years of hydrological data, spanning 2300 km of the Murray River, Australia. We used distributed lag nonlinear...
