Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues, 

Investigating high-resolution atmosphere–hydrology coupled modeling systems under the influence of intensive climate change/variability and human activities can lay a scientific foundation for water resources security in areas of extensive human activities and it can enhance the basic support capacity to ensure water safety in water-scarce areas. This Special Issue “Modeling applications under changing climatic conditions on water resource security” solicits papers on recent advances and applications in the areas of "natural–social" dualistic water cycle theory and high-resolution atmosphere (e.g., China Meteorological Assimilation Driving Datasets for the SWAT model (CMADS) [http://www.cmads.org] )-hydrology coupled modeling.

These may include, but are not limited to, water disasters, water environment modeling, non-point source pollution modeling, eco-hydrological modeling, climate change research, uncertainty analysis of hydrological modeling, response of water resources under climate change, the impact of agriculture on climate change and anthropogenic activities, meteorological analysis, meteorological verification, model intercomparison, atmosphere–hydrology coupled modeling, watershed surface water–groundwater interactions, virtual water, and reservoir regulation. We especially encourage research manuscripts on theoretical, computational, and field studies on the topics above.

Manuscript Submission Information

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. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Atmosphere 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 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
