Special Issue "Integrated Effect of Climate and Land Use on Hydrology and Soil Erosion"
A special issue of Hydrology (ISSN 2306-5338).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2021.
This Special Issue of Hydrology is mainly focused on evaluating the integrated and individual effects of climate and land use on hydrology using contemporary and appropriate techniques to estimate future predictions. The main intention of this issue is to present precise and novel information regarding variations of the hydrological characteristics due to the effect of climate and land use changes. The availability, distribution, and exchange of water through the land–atmosphere interface is one of the crucial factors that determines adequate sustenance. Recent developments in the field of remote sensing satellite data and in situ observations have led to an improved understanding of the hydrological processes. Climate change modifies intensity and time of precipitation, stream flow, evapotranspiration, soil erosion, and soil moisture. Land use change alters and transforms the land, which leads to changes in the properties of the land surface and eventually modifies water exchange of the land–atmosphere system.
Special focus is given to hybrid methods, modeling, and recent advancements in the fields of spatiotemporal variation in the water balance, precipitation, and land use changes involving remote sensing and various statistical analysis. This Special Issue includes but is not limited to a wide range of topics, such as:
- Climate change impacts on extremes like flood and drought;
- Time series analysis of hydrometeorological parameters;
- Watershed modeling using remote sensing products or situ observations;
- Land use change impact on sediment and future water balance;
- Impact of climate on soil erosion and modeling;
- Flood modelling and management;
- Climate change and evapotranspiration, snow, soil moisture;
- Climate change impact of available water resources and agricultural production;
- Climate change and land use change impact on groundwater recharge and modeling;
- The orbital effect of forcing of climate for global hydrology.

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. Hydrology 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 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.
