Special Issue "Research on Cold Regions Hydrology"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 April 2022.
Interests: Influence of wintertime processes (e.g. snow cover and freeze-thaw cycling) and land management on soil physical properties & erodibility, and surface & subsurface nutrient dynamics.
Interests: Thermodynamics of flow and transport through porous media and dynamics of soil-water-ice in porous media impacting ecosystems and infrastructure.
Climate change is impacting the fluvial, glacial and lacustrine hydrology and the soil-water-ice dynamics in parts of the northern hemisphere where the winter temperatures dip below freezing. Change in precipitation and evapotranspiration rates and freezing degree-days are inducing rapid changes in runoff, erosion, agricultural development, landscape evolution and impact on existing infrastructures. Shift in snow cover, soil thermodynamics and freeze-thaw cycling influence physico-chemical environmental processes and present unique challenges for ecosystem and infrastructure management and water quality sustenance. This special issue invites contributions in three thematic areas related to cold regions hydrology: 1) Snow, ice and surface water; 2) Soil, sediments and groundwater systems; and 3) Physical modelling and advanced learning processes.

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 semimonthly 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 2200 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.
