Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Affected by global climate change and rapid socio-economic development, China suffers from severe water security pressure, especially in terms of water shortages, flood disasters and water-related ecological and environmental problems. The solution to these problems requires comprehensive research across different disciplines.

Focusing on discussing China’s water issues, we carried out a series of academic exchanges over a long period. The well-known “China Water Forum”, launched in 2003 and held annually, focuses on discussing solutions to China’s water issues. By 2023, the forum was successfully held for 20 sessions. “Water Science Development Forum”, launched in 2007 and held annually, focuses on promoting the multidisciplinary integration of other disciplines with water science research. By 2023, the forum was successfully held for 16 sessions. “Water Science Lectures”, launched in 2021, is an open, shared and non-profit public welfare lecture. A report will be arranged for each lecture, which will be lectured and presided over by invited famous researchers.

The Editorial Department of Water Journal cooperates with “China Water Forum”, “Water Science Development Forum” and “Water Science Lectures” to set up a series of columns. At least one column is planned each year currently. The column established in 2024 is “China Water Forum 2024”. We welcome scholars and graduate students participating in the above-mentioned conferences, as well as scholars who study water issues in China, to submit full texts of their unpublished manuscripts. The received papers will be professionally peer-reviewed and recommended for publication by the editorial board.

We invite submissions on, but not limited to, the following topics:

(1)Climate change and hydrology     Director: Dunxian She, Rong Gan

(2)Water problems and human–water relationship control      Director: Zengliang Luo, Qiting Zuo

(3)Water environment and ecology       Director: Fuqiang Wang, Jiaqi Zhai

(4)Water information technology and modeling     Director: Lei Zou, Xiuyu Zhang.

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.

The natural hydrological cycle of basins has been significantly altered by climate change and human activities, leading to considerable uncertainties in attributing runoff. In this study, the impact of climate change and human activities on runoff of the Ganjiang River Basin was analyzed, and a variety of models with different spatio-temporal scales and complexities were used to evaluate the influence of model choice on runoff attribution and to reduce the uncertainties. The results show the following: (1) The potential evapotranspiration in the Ganjiang River Basin showed a significant downward trend, precipitation showed a significant upward trend, runoff showed a nonsignificant upward trend, and an abrupt change was detected in 1968; (2) The three hydrological models used with different temporal scales and complexity, GR1A, ABCD, DTVGM, can simulate the natural distribution of water resources in the Ganjiang River Basin; and (3) The impact of climate change on runoff change ranges from 60.07% to 82.88%, while human activities account for approximately 17.12% to 39.93%. The results show that climate change is the main driving factor leading to runoff variation in the Ganjiang River Basin. Full article
