Interests: watershed hydrochemical model; impacts of climate change on water processes in the basin; application of artificial intelligence in climate change and basin hydrology
Climate change has posed significant challenges to global water resources, particularly affecting basin hydrology. As these impacts become more pronounced, it is crucial to understand the intricacies of climate-induced alterations to hydrological processes in order to address the ensuing challenges to water resources. This Special Issue invites contributions that examine the impacts of climate change on basin hydrology, with a focus on assessing and addressing the associated consequences on water resources and management strategies.
It is crucial to understand the intricacies of climate-induced alterations to hydrological processes in order to address the ensuing challenges to water resources.
The objective of this Special Issue is to evaluate atmospheric, hydrological, and climatic interactions and their implications for water resources in various regions by showcasing novel research methodologies, interdisciplinary perspectives, and innovative approaches, emphasizing the importance of interdisciplinary research in addressing climate change challenges.
Key topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Investigation of modeled and/or projected shifts in precipitation patterns and their consequences for basin hydrology within the context of climate change scenarios.
- Application of advanced numerical and statistical modeling techniques, including various innovative deep learning approaches, to evaluate and forecast hydrological responses to climate change.
- Implementation of mechanistic and statistical-based downscaling techniques for GCM data, with a particular focus on the integration of emerging artificial intelligence methodologies.
- Analysis of surface–atmosphere water interactions in the context of climate change, encompassing precipitation, evaporation, surface runoff, soil moisture, groundwater, and streamflows.
- Assessment of the influence of land-use changes on hydrological processes and precipitation variability in impacted basins, with a particular emphasis on the interplay between these changes and global climate change effects.
- Examination of extreme events (e.g., droughts and floods) and their underlying mechanisms in relation to basin hydrology and climate change.
- Integration of remote sensing and hydrological measurements for monitoring and managing basin hydrology under climate change.
- Formulation and implementation of adaptive water resources management strategies to address the challenges posed by climate change on basin hydrology.
