Special Issue in Agriculture: Agricultural Watershed Hydrology, Water Quality Modeling and Water Management
Extreme events due to climate change, when combined with land-use change, have many impacts on hydrological processes in the watershed. The quantity and quality of water available for human consumption and ecosystem processes are affected mainly by land use and climate change. Contaminants from various sources, including agricultural, urban, and industrial areas, are increasing and posing threats locally, regionally, and globally. For this Special Issue, we solicit papers related to any aspects of land use and climate change impacts on hydrologic systems. The following are the topic areas we are particularly interested in:
- Application of hydrological models to assess the impact of land use and climate change on surface and groundwater quantity and quality;
- Impacts on land-use and climate change on hydrological controls;
- Changes in water ecosystem services due to land-use and climate change;
- Changes in the biogeochemistry of water resources;
- Impacts on water security due to land-use conversions and extreme events.
This Special Issue will provide peer-reviewed papers that will be a valuable resource for students, researchers, educators, planners, and managers.Dr. Soni M. Pradhanang
