Academic journal Sustainability is currently accepting submissions for upcoming Special Issue entitled "Natural Disasters and Extreme Solar Energy" (indexed by WoS–SSCI, IF2017: 2.685 and Scopus: Q1), under the supervision of respected guest editors: Dr. Vladimir A. Srećković, Dr. Aleksandra Nina, and Prof. Dr. Milan Radovanović.
The atmosphere is a very sensitive medium to extraterrestrial forces, most importantly, solar electromagnetic radiation and energetic particle intrusion. This released intense solar activity can cause sudden disturbances in the Earth’s atmosphere and further create ground telecommunication interferences, blackouts, transportation problems, water supply problems, potential health effects, as well as natural disasters, such as forest fires. These extreme events can cause billions of dollars of damage and impact individuals, families, communities, and societies. For this reason, it is of crucial importance to investigate the connections between this extreme activity, natural disasters, and further develop ways to prevent, prepare against, and respond to them. The aim of this Special Issue is to engage a wide community of scientists to defragment and expend current knowledge in this field.
We would like to invite you to submit review-papers, case studies, or research articles that formulate innovative approaches related to this field so that these results can be used by other scientists as well as engineers and other people employed in the industry. Potential topics include but are not limited to:
- Natural hazards;
- solar activity;
- Atmosphere modeling and forecasting;
- Remote sensing;
- Public health;
- Transportation safety;
- Telecommunication disturbances;
and other topics that connect risk, disasters, and sustainability.
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2019.
