Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Urbanization, biofuel production, deforestation and agricultural expansion are just some examples of large-scale land use and land cover changes (LUCC) that have significant and direct impacts on surface water and energy balance, and local surface climate parameters. These LUCC also affect or are manifestations of changes in energy use. This Special Issue of Energies addresses these direct and indirect effects of large-scale LUCC. We invite papers that address any of the following three topics:

1. Large-scale LUCC and direct impacts on surface energy flux
2. Large-scale LUCC and impacts on surface water balance
3. Large-scale LUCC and indirect impacts on energy use

We especially encourage papers that provide new methodological approaches and use of novel datasets to model and forecast these relationships.

Submission

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Energies is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1200 CHF (Swiss Francs).
