Hydrology and Climate Change
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 March 2023) | Viewed by 4342
Climate change affects both input and output components of the hydrological cycle. In response to the warming climate, the hydrological cycle is expected to intensify, resulting in the increased intensity and duration of extreme events such as floods, droughts, forest fires and heatwaves. Water is critical to life, and many of the effects of climate change on aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems are mediated through altered hydrology. This Special Issue of Water is devoted to promoting advances in global research into changes in precipitation and evapotranspiration patterns, the size of snow and glacier mass, soil moisture levels, rates of runoff and stream flow, meteorological/hydrological/ecological droughts, water scarcity, the impact of climate change on ecosystems, vulnerability assessment, advances in remote sensing technology for hydrological signatures, and adaption to climate change. Pertinent examples of topics for this Special Issue include the increase of agricultural and ecological droughts, flood risks assessment, changes in precipitation and hydrological processes, the integration of drones and remote sensing into environmental change monitoring, water conservation, integrated water resources management, climate resilience and sustainable development. All types of manuscripts (original research, review, etc.) are highly welcome.

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.
