A changing climate will have considerable impacts on the hydrology of lakes and rivers, affecting the timing and magnitude of the hydrological regime, changing the extreme droughts and floods and alter the availabilty of water for human use and consumption. This will have an impact on the environment of lakes and rivers and how lakes and rivers are used in the future. This Special Issue will address the changed hydrological regime of lakes and rivers in a future climate, and its implications for the physical processes that depend on the hydrological regime. The latter include water temperature, ice and snow, erosion and sediment transport and river morphology, and the interaction between these processes. For this Special Issue, we invite papers that cover the hydrology of lakes and rivers, particularly focusing on the alteration of flow regimes and processes related to changed hydrology and their implication for the lake and river environment. We would also like to invite authors that address how climate-driven changes in lake and river hydrology will impact the future human use of these 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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.
