This Special Issue comprises selected papers from the Proceedings of the 1st International Electronic Conference on the Hydrological Cycle (ChyCle-2017, http://sciforum.net/conference/CHyCle-2017), 12–16 November, 2017, on sciforum.net, an online platform for hosting scholarly e-conferences and discussion groups.
The main aim of this Special Issue is advance towards a better understanding of the hydrological cycle, including its observed changes and projections under future climate.
The range of topics will mainly cover the following subtopics:
i) Global Distribution of Water Vapor: Evaporation and precipitation, water vapor flux and divergence, long-range transport of water vapor, clouds;
ii) Source–Sink Relationships and Methodologies: Methods used to establish source-receptor relationships, analytical or box models, numerical water vapor tracers, physical water vapor tracers (isotopes);
iii) Global Source and Sink Regions of Moisture and Processes: Identifying large-scale oceanic sources, terrestrial sources, and sinks of moisture, investigating the mechanisms associated with source and sink regions;
iv) Extreme Events: Atmospheric Rivers, floods, evaporation Hot Spots, anomalies of moisture transport linked to Drought Periods;
v) Low-Level Jets, Warm Pools, Monsoons and their role in the transport of moisture;
vi) The identification and characteristics of moisture sources, megadroughts, and megapluvials within the scope of Paleoclimatic Studies;
vii) Implications of Climate Change Impact on Hydrology: changes in water vapor, changes in large-scale circulation related to moisture transport, changes in precipitation, aridity, evapotranpiration, soil moisture, streamflow, cloud distribution, and other usable water sources (snow, lake levels, reservoirs, glaciers, etc.);
viii) Impacts of Climate Change in Soil Hydrological Processes, with special focus on forest hydrology, including experimental plots and catchments;
ix) Eco-hydrological Modelling at different spatial scales;
x) Water Resources Management and Impacts of Climate Change, including adaptation strategies, with special focus in the Mediterranean region.Prof. Raquel Nieto

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 monthly 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 1600 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.
