Climate change has significant impacts on water resource systems. Such impacts may involve the hydrological cycle and the related human interests, such as water supply, drought prevention, and flooding control. With the effects of climate change, planning for various water-related infrastructure will also need to be updated. Therefore, long-term climate modeling and hydrological projection are essential for supporting the improvements of such plans.
This Special Issue encourages contributions of (1) coupled models for long-term hydroclimate simulation; (2) hydrologic impacts based on long-term climate projections, driven by GCMs, RCMs, and statistical downscaling models; (3) adaptation of climate-change impacts on the hydrological cycle, associated with the analyses of their socioeconomic and environmental effects; and (4) reflection of uncertainties in long-term climate modeling and hydrological projection, as well as the relevant efforts for adaptation planning.

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 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 1000 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.
