Deadline for manuscript submissions: 14 February 2020.
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
The rise in global temperature is already negatively influencing water resources, while in the upcoming years it is anticipated that this pressure on water bodies will intensify to an unprecedented level. The frequency, intensity, timing, patterns and magnitude of floods, droughts, heatwaves and heavy storm events are expected to change dramatically, and to have a detrimental effect on humans and infrastructure, while causing severe damage to the environment as well. Additionally, human interventions such as urbanization, land use change and the inappropriate design and failure of works can trigger or aggravate the aforementioned phenomena.
This Special Issue aims to provide a forum for scientists from different domains to unveil, through original and innovating papers, the key processes, mechanisms and consequences of the latter phenomena, so that this new knowledge can be used to mitigate the impact of such events for the benefit of society. The related coverage of these topics, which foresees a major breakthrough in current knowledge, will involve the detection, analysis, monitoring, interpretation, modelling, forecasting, preparedness, prevention adaptation, mitigation and public awareness of such events, on multiple spatial and temporal scales.
