Special Issue "Climate Change Effects on Water Resources Management"
A special issue of Hydrology (ISSN 2306-5338).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 December 2021.
Interests: climate change; hydrological modelling; flood and drought analysis; water infrastructure design and operation; water quality management
Climate change is one of the most severe challenges in the 21st century. Humanity faces significant socio-economic impacts from climate change across several sectors. Climate change affects cities and the built environment, coasts, agriculture, water resources and natural ecosystems all over the world. Among those, water resources management is one of the most affected fields due to the strong relationship between climate and water resources. Climate change alters timing and magnitude of precipitation, evapotranspiration, runoff and soil moisture. Such changes have significant consequences on water resources planning and management. In several regions over the world, freshwater is already limited, and climate change causes additional stress on available freshwater resources in terms of both quantity and quality. Therefore, there is an urgent need to better understand the impacts, adaptation and mitigation measures of climate change on water resources management.
This Special Issue aims to gather contributions on climate change impact, adaptation and mitigation with a particular focus on water resources management. The contributions to this Special Issue will encompass a broad range of topics, including, but not limited to:
- Climate change impacts on flood and drought management
- Hydro-meteorological time series analysis
- Climate change effects on water infrastructure design and operation
- Watershed modelling using wide range of hydrological models
- Climate change impacts on groundwater management
- Climate change adaptation in water resources planning and management
- Urban water management under climate change effects.
