Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
In the context of the increasing climate variability and anthropogenic stresses, changes to the water cycle and the underlying land surface have widespread vast concern regarding water resources security and the corresponding ecological evolution. Investigations into the changes and driving mechanisms of the water cycle and water resources at the catchment or regional scales have become one of the most basic issues for global sustainable development.
In recent years, with the development of computer science, remote sensing technology, and climatic models, climate change impacts on land surface, hydrological processes, and water management have been further studied, alongside the emegence of new perspectives and understandings. Therefore, this Special Issue aims to represent the latest advances of this scientific topic. We welcome contributions in all fields relevant to climate change, hydrometeorological modeling, and water resources management, as well as emerging technologies and models. The specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Climate change impacts on land surface;
- Hydrological modeling of the effects of land use/land cover change;
- Hydrological response to climate change;
- Water resources management;
- Application of regional climate model;
- Catchment flood and drought;
- Remote sensing hydrology;
- Ecological response to hydrological change;
- Vegetation–atmosphere interaction.

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. Water is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2600 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.
