Scope It is recognized that large cities with a population of several million people are inherently vulnerable to extreme weathers such as torrential rain, giant typhoon, and heat wave. It is argued that the occurrence of weather phenomena tends to increase due to the global warming. Cooperating with related academic societies,Japan Society of Hydrology and Water Resources, Meteorological Society of Japan, Association of Japanese Geographers, the session will focus on the mechanism of extreme weather, its monitoring and prediction methods, effects of urbanization on urban hazards, and social experiments on resilient cities.
