Special Issue "Impacts of Climate Change and Agricultural Practices on Watershed Hydrology"
A special issue of Agriculture (ISSN 2077-0472).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 July 2016).
Agriculture, hydrology and climate change are inextricably linked—crop yield, water use, and soil health, are directly affected by a changing climate. Climate change will have major impacts on the availability of water for crop production in the decades to come. This Special Issue publishes original research articles, short communications, and critical review papers, enhancing the science of agricultural hydrology and aiming, the past and future conditions, impacts of climate change analysis, review, and solutions. The Special Issue particularly welcomes research papers that deliver new insights into hydrological processes in agricultural land and responses to changing climate conditions, as well as contributions that incorporate interdisciplinary and translational science.
The Special Issue’s scope includes, but is not limited to, articles relating agricultural hydrology and impacts of climate change:
- surface and subsurface watershed hydrology with emphasis on agricultural land use;
- impacts of climatic and land use change on natural hydrologic processes and water resources;
- hydrologic process observations, modeling and predictions;
- uncertainty analysis;
- innovative methods for agricultural water management issues.
