Special Issue "Water Resources and Climate Change"
A special issue of Resources (ISSN 2079-9276).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 May 2020).
Interests: hydrology; water resources; climate change
Climate change has a strong impact on the global water cycle, affecting the availability and variability of water resources. Recent research advances strongly suggest that climate change is expected to alter the timing and magnitude of precipitation, evapotranspiration, runoff and soil moisture. Such changes raise concerns for possible dislocations in societal and economic development, affecting future water resource planning and management. Adding to the already limited amount of available water in several regions, the demand is expected to continue rising with socioeconomic developments and population growth. This will affect water and food security, energy production, and ecosystem services. This Special Issue aims to increase the scientific knowledge on water resources and climate change interaction at the local, regional and global scale. Contributions tackling the theme of water resources and climate change in their broader sense, including but not limited to sustainable water resource management, changes in seasonality, soil moisture, river flow, dam storage under climate change, hydrological modelling and projection, arid region hydrology, droughts, water resource planning and management, under the perspective of a changing climate, are welcome.
