To complement the EVAN conference we have arranged to organize a special issue with the journal Natural Hazards. Talks from the conference will form the basis for papers in this special issue, although additional contributions are welcome. Papers describing and analysis of extremes of a wide range of geophysical variables (i.e. temperature, rainfall, flows, sea level, winds, surface ocean waves, snow) and works related to natural hazards (floods, windstorms, wave storms, heat waves, droughts, landslides) are welcome. Manuscripts can be submitted between now and January 1st 2018. More information is available here. We are looking forward to receiving many interesting contributions.
