Water and Soil Management in Adaptation to Climate Change
The journals Remote Sensing, Sustainability, Water, Agriculture, and Climate launch a multi-disciplinary Research Topic on "Water and Soil Management in Adaptation to Climate Change" and invite researchers, experts, and professionals from Research Institutions, Universities, as well as National and International Organizations and Enterprises to contribute their research achievements in this field. The main aim of this Topic is to increase the scientific knowledge on and understanding of the interactions between water/soil resource management and climate change impacts at local, regional, and global scales, which is a fundamental factor in order to reach the goal of a sustainable society.
In the last half century, climate change has been increasingly impacting the hydrological cycle, while environmental resources have been experiencing significant stress resulting in water and soil related degradation in many regions around the world. In such cases, it is of great importance to increase water productivity and water security and prevent crop damages under extreme climate conditions and different anthropogenic interventions, through various measures such as climatic water/soil adaptive agronomic practices and geoinformatics tools (advanced modelling, GIS, and remote sensing applications).
Thus, in this Topic, studies that focus on new developments in the modelling and management of water and soil dynamics, including sustainable solutions of water supply under pressure systems are of great importance. Additionally, new methods to assess and mitigate hydrological extremes (floods, droughts, soil/water erosion), especially in rural areas, will be primarily considered. Due to the increased water scarcity in arid, but also already in mild, climates, the efficiency of wastewater treatment and reuse is under focus and new advanced and nature-based technologies are in focus. In this context, the efficient use of brackish and saline waters is becoming a priority as climate change accelerates. Therefore, new findings in wastewater management and the reuse of treated effluents for irrigation or recycling in industrial processes are a pillar of this Topic.
