    Special Issue on Global Climate Change and Water Resources


    In view of the concept of modern climate system, water resources are the result of the long-term interaction between the five layers of the climate system. The study of the impact of climate change on water resources mainly includes two aspects: the impact of climate change on hydrological cycle, the impact of climate change on water resources management system and water resources supply and demand balance. Water resources, as an indispensable resource for the development of human society, have been seriously disturbed and influenced by human activities. The abnormality and change of climate and large-scale human activities can significantly affect water cycle, water volume, water quality, temporal and spatial distribution of water resources and the frequency and intensity of flood and drought disasters.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original researches and review articles on exploring global climate change and water resources. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Impacts of climate change on water resources
    • Hydrological cycle
    • Water disasters
    • Water management system
    • Water resources supply and demand balance
    • Changes in the balance between snow and rain
    • Climate change and precipitation
    • Climate change and water policies

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly notice that the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue – Global Climate Change and Water Resources” should be chosen during your submission.
