Special Issue "Hydrology of the Arctic Region"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2021.
Interests: hydroclimatology; climate change; hydrological processes in cold regions; hydrological modeling; permafrost hydrology; monitoring of hydrological processes in the Arctic
The Arctic system is experiencing the effects of global change, especially atmospheric warming, to a degree equal to or greater than that in any other region on the planet. Arctic water and energy cycles are embedded deeply into these changes and in defining both the Arctic and Earth system response. A broad spectrum of observational evidence suggests a potentially intensified high latitude water cycle and significant changes in different components of Arctic hydrology, including changes in river flow and river biogeochemistry, permafrost degradation and melting of glaciers, lengthened ice-free period in lakes and rivers, disappearance of lakes, and reductions in snow cover and river/lake ice thickness. This Special Issue invites papers focusing on the quantification of contemporary changes in various components of the Arctic hydrological system and on assessment of the potential causes of these changes through analysis of various data (ground, field, remote sensing) and/or numerical modeling. We also invite publications discussing and analyzing future changes in Arctic hydrological processes in different scales from local to regional and continental.

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. 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 2000 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.
