The interaction between fresh water ecosystems and climate is rapidly changing because of the impact of incoming climate changes. Clear evidence of these impacts are available for the thermal regime of lakes and rivers, for the glacier ice cover and for the distribution of precipitation and runoff just to mention the most important ones. These modifications directly influence the quality and availability of the water resource. Impact on the biogeochemical cycles, on the food web and on the productivity of water ecosystems have been also documented.
The aim of this Special Issue of Water is to present contribution in the broad field of water resources and climate interactions including both the effects on water quantity and quality. Authors are stimulated to present advanced integrated research to forecast, control and manage climate related impact on the water resources with particular respect to the provision ecosystem services. Contribution focused on natural or urban/anthropized systems are both welcome. The integration of natural sciences with economic and social sciences is also very much appreciated.
