The impacts of climate change on hydrology are varied and have many implications for resource management, resilience and adapatation. Ample evidence can be found to illustrate ongoing impacts, in addition to projected increases in current trends that include longer dry seasons, shorter wet seasons with more extreme precipitation, diminished snowpack, and longer and more extreme droughts. The hydrological responses to climate change can be examined from a variety of perspectives, including field observations of changing habitats and influences on organisms, hydrological modeling of water supply and impacts on landscapes, and the response of varying components of the hydrological cycle, including soil moisture, coastal fog, evpotranspiration, baseflows, shifts from snow to rain, and changes in recharge versus runoff. This special issue of Water will present the results and discussion of investigations into many aspects of how hydrology responds to changes in climate.

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.
