Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nowadays anthropogenic climate change and its socioeconomic impacts are major concerns of mankind. Global surface temperature has been increased significantly during the last century and will continue to rise unless greenhouse gas emissions are drastically reduced (IPCC, 2001; 2007). Despite uncertainties in future climates, there is considerable evidence that there will be substantial impacts on the environment and human interests. The effects of climate change on hydrological, ecological and socioeconomic regimes have become a priority area, both for process research and for water management strategies. Climate change effects are manifold and vary regionally, even locally, in their intensity, duration and areal extent. However, immediate damages to humans and their properties are not obviously caused by gradual changes in temperature or precipitation but mainly by so-called extreme events such as floods and droughts. The purpose of this Special Issue of Water is to present innovative studies on the effects of climate change on: a) the hydrologic processes and response of both rain-fed and snowmelt watersheds and river basins, b) the frequency and intensity of extreme hydrological events such as droughts and floods, c) the water availability and water demand in a range of geographical and climate areas of the world, and d) the management, development and planning of water resources.
