Description: Forty-seven new and previously published articles cover issues and case studies related to all types of storms all over the world. Topics include community vulnerability mapping; the WMO and global response to storms; severe storms and the insurance industry; tropical cyclone impacts in China; reframing the US hurricane problem; the structure, effects and forecasting of ice storms; winter storms over Russia; the impacts of extratropical cyclones in Cuba; an overview of mesoscale convective systems; flash floods associated with convective storms; impacts of hail in the US; progress in understanding windshear and implications on aviation; recent research contributions on the South Asian monsoon; space weather prediction; and the changing frequency of dust storms through time. Though most contributions come from meteorologists and atmospheric and environmental scientists, a number were written by geologists, sociologists, geographers, and hydrologists (Environment Canada, NCAR, and US universities are well-represented).
