Improving water security is a primary motivation for studies in hydroclimatology. While statistical relationships between global climate teleconnections and land water have been developed, additional research is needed to advance this field of study. Some examples include a better understanding of (i) intervening atmospheric and oceanic dynamics between climate states and water supply, (ii) relationships between climatic variability and exchanges between components of the hydrologic cycle (e.g., precipitation with stream flow and stream flow with groundwater), (iii) cascading temporal and spatial scales of hydroclimatic variability, (iv) water’s impact on climate variability and change (e.g., in the cryosphere). This Special Issue aims to provide new insights into these and other unresolved issues in hydroclimatology. Observational and modeling studies of the effects of intraseasonal (e.g., the Madden Julian Oscillation), interannual (e.g., El Nino/Southern Oscillation), and decadal (e.g., Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation) climate variability on freshwater reservoirs and flows from local, regional, and global perspectives are 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 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 1800 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.
