The year 2017 was dubbed “The Year of Extreme Weather” (NPR 2017), with three major hurricanes making landfall in the United States, while drought prevailed and fires raged in California and the Southwest. In the Anthropocene, people and ecosystems are experiencing extreme weather-related events of increasing magnitude with increasing frequency. This changing landscape highlights an urgent need to bring clarity to understanding of extreme events and their impacts while also determining how best to respond to them. We aim to bring together social, ecological, and engineering perspectives on resilience with ecological perspectives on extreme events as they are represented among LTER sites working on (or experiencing) disturbance.
