Under the influence of the changing climatic conditions caused by the varying intensity of macroscale types of circulation, a river regime may be destabilized and changed into another, sometimes with distinct regularities in the seasonality of high and low waters, thus disturbing the previously established hydro-ecological and water use conditions. Many naturally occurring ocean–atmosphere oscillations in the Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian oceans have been recognized and named. Some of them have a strong impact on climate and weather patterns in many regions of the world. The phenomenon produces marked effects on the various physical processes that govern the surface hydrometeorology of the study area, mainly temperature, precipitation and streamflow. From both a scientific and a practical point of view it is important to investigate in such a way as to enable the identification of flood- and drought-generating processes and their possible linkages with disturbances in ocean behavior. The effect of the research should be to determine the spatial extent and strength of the impact of these phenomena on river hydrology in different regions of the world, mainly in terms of the transformation of the hydrological regime and volume of water resources, their stability, predictability and temporal and spatial changes.

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.
