Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Climate change is one of the most significant global challenges of the 21st century. The major concern of climate change is the resulting increase in hydro-meteorological hazards such as tropical cyclones, droughts, floods, and heatwaves, which has caused serious disruption with widespread socio-economic impacts. Therefore, there is an urgent need to better understand the causes, impacts, and mitigation measures of hydro-meteorological hazards under climate change in order to reduce the loss of life and damage to property.

The aim of this Special Issue is to gather contributions on hydro-meteorological extremes studies. The contributions to this Special Issue will encompass a broad spectrum of topics, including, but not limited to:

  • Novel approaches to identify hydro-meteorological hazards;
  • New observation and modeling tools to understand hydro-meteorological hazards;
  • Improvement of hydro-meteorological forecasting across various temporal and spatial scales;
  • Assessment of climate change impacts on hydro-meteorological hazards;
  • Projection of hydro-meteorological hazards and potentially devastating consequences;
  • Development of mitigation measures of hydro-meteorological disasters;
  • Quantification of uncertainties in hydro-meteorological hazard assessment.

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.

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 1800 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.
