Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Recently, climate change has become one of the most urgent problems in the world, especially regarding the management and protection of water resources. Rising temperatures and changes in precipitation patterns disturb the entire water cycle. This affects the hydrological regime and leads to water scarcity and water-related extreme naturals hazards including floods and droughts. In the face of increasing climate instability, urbanization growth and economical losses, there is an urgent need to prevent the degradation of water resources and stop the further decline in biodiversity.

Research published in this Special Issue should focus on innovative spatial analyses, methods and models that can be applied for the purpose of the ecohydrological, geomorphological and environmental management of surface and groundwater resources. Results presented at different scales should help in finding solutions to improve water management and flood protection, enhance biodiversity, and help policy makers make better decisions regarding ecological threats, and at the same time, helps to protect the hydrological regime and catchment processes.

This Special Issue aims to publish research results including:

  • The impact of climate change on the hydrological regime;
  • Advanced methods and techniques for hydrological modelling;
  • Modelling of integrated water resource management;
  • Analyses of pollutants and sediment transport in rivers, lakes and reservoirs;
  • Mitigating impacts of anthropogenic pressures on water flows;
  • The mapping of water related extreme events including floods and drought;
  • The application of remote sensing and GIS in water resource monitoring;
  • Future challenges for integrated water management.

In order to safeguard the ecological health of Changxinggang River’s water environment, conducting research on ecological discharge, including establishing reasonable ecological discharge control values, is of great importance. This study utilized monthly hydro-ecological data from the Xintang section of the Changxinggang River that spanned the years 2016 to 2020. It defined the water quality control indicators for both non-flood and flood periods in the Changxinggang River and utilized the MIKE 11 software to construct the MIKE 11 one-dimensional hydrodynamic–water quality coupling model. A comparison between simulated values and measured values showed that the model exhibits a relative error of less than 17%, indicating its suitability for practical use. The results indicate that the water quality control indicators for the non-flood period in the Changxinggang River encompass ammonium nitrogen (NH3-N), chemical oxygen demand (manganese) (CODMn), and biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), while those for the flood period include NH3-N, total phosphorus (TP), and CODMn. Reasonable ecological discharge control values for both non-flood and flood periods in the Changxinggang River are calculated to be 2.59 m3/s and 2.63 m3/s, respectively. The model developed in this study is applicable for ecological discharge calculations in the Changxinggang River, and the proposed ecological discharge control values are achievable. Full article
