HIWeather is working with Springer publishers to bring out a book that summarises current and emerging good practice in the production and communication of weather-related warnings. The book is aimed primarily at disaster management professionals, including those in weather services and related environmental protection bodies who contribute to the production of warnings. It will also provide a valuable pedagogical resource for those studying or training in disaster risk reduction. The book will consist of an Introduction, followed by a section that places warnings in the context of disaster risk management, then 5 chapters dealing with the five “valleys of death” in the HIWeather warning chain concept (see Zhang et al, 2019, Increasing the value of weather-related warnings, Science bulletin, 64, 647-649 http://hiweather.net/Uploads/ue/file/20190723/1563869466819765.pdf), followed by a summary. A large writing team has been assembled and is currently writing the first draft.
