Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Global change strongly affects water resources, impairing both water quantity and water quality. Assessments of the hydrologic impacts of climate change and land use change are, therefore, carried out in many parts of the world. However, the simultaneous effect of the two stressors on water resources is not often comprehensively investigated. Do impacts of land use and climate change add up or do they balance out on the catchment scale? We welcome modeling studies that use SWAT (Soil and Water Assessment Tool) or APEX (Agricultural Policy/Environmental eXtender) to assess global change impacts on the catchment scale. These may incorporate the use of climate and land use change scenarios for future predictions, as well as the assessment of past impacts. The use of climate model ensembles and land use model predictions is encouraged to address the uncertainty associated with global change impact assessments. Studies may focus on all kinds of water, sediment, and nutrient fluxes. We also invite contributions with a methodological focus, e.g. model improvements and parameterization approaches that help to better model the impacts of global change. We sincerely hope that these research papers contribute to a better understanding, assessment, and modeling of global change impacts on water resources.

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.
