Special Issue "Modified Hydrological Cycle under Global Warming"
A special issue of Climate (ISSN 2225-1154).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2018)
Prof. Dr. Claudio Cassardo
Global warming is affecting water hydrological cycles worldwide, changing precipitation amounts and timing and hydrologic losses, and making previously extreme events more frequent. Hydrology and water resources in high altitudes are affected by cryospheric down wasting, and downstream desert areas may lose large amounts of water resources.
The modified water cycle under global warming will have fallout on water and food security, energy production, ecosystem services, and adaptation measures will be needed.
This Special Issue will, thus, welcome contributions tackling the broad range issue of hydrological changes, water availability, and adaptation in a broad array of conditions, such as:
- Hydrological modeling under global warming;
- Water resources prediction, sensitivity analysis, and adaptation measures;
- Climatic and hydrological trends’ assessment;
- Impact of climate change on cryospheric water;
- Enhanced magnitude of extreme events;
- Modified water needs for multipurpose use;
- Effects of modified hydrology on riverine environment.
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. Climate is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 550 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.
