Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This special issue seeks for studies that investigate state-of-the-art methods for analyzing trends and variations in hydroclimatic variables in space and time. As hydroclimatic variables are considered rainfall and all climate variables that affect evapotranspiration and drought/aridity but also other components of the water cycle such as streamflow/floods, level of inland waters (lakes, reservoirs) and groundwater, which are indirect measures of hydroclimatic disturbance. The methods used for analyzing trends and variations in hydroclimatic variables in space and time are grouped in three categories: a) statistical, b) machine learning, and c) deterministic/physical-based. The purpose of this special issue is to provide a collection of papers that will present a variety of such methods in different climatic environments and case studies, which can highlight the impact of hydroclimatic disturbance on the environment and on the socio-economic sector.

The topics covered by this Special Issue will include but not limited to the following:

  • Methods for analyzing temporal trends and variations in time-series of hydroclimatic variables;
  • Analysis of extreme events;
  • Detecting spatial variations and trends in hydroclimatic variables;
  • Climate change predictions and uncertainty assessment using global and regional circulation models;
  • Geostatistical methods in remote sensing and GIS for climate change impact assessment;
  • Climate change impact assessment using modelling of surface and groundwater hydrology at watershed scale;
  • Climate change/disturbance impact on agricultural water use and agrometeorological attributes;
  • Climate change/disturbance impact on natural ecosystems and ecosystem services;

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Hydrology 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 1600 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.
