Compound and cascading events of weather-related natural hazards are often underrated by scientists due to the challenge to find the interaction of multiple hazard drivers in space or time. The ultimate challenge is to consider the joint probabilities of dry hazards (e.g., droughts, heat waves, fires) with wet hazards (e.g., floods, storm surges, landslides) rather than focusing on the probability of a single hazard. A few studies show that joint probabilities of either dry hazards or wet hazards have been investigated and that it is even possible to combine probabilities of wet and dry hazards. For example, landslides during the rainy season may occur after fires struck forested regions in the dry season. This session aims to provide a platform for showcasing current state-of-the-art knowledge and recent research findings on concurrent, compound, or cascading events that belong to a hazard category (wet hazards or dry hazards) or across these categories. This session also facilitates the exchange of knowledge and expertise among scientists and practitioners. We encourage contributions related to all aspects of multiple weather-related natural hazards modelling as well as novel applications of historical and forecasted hazards interaction in the past.
