The simulation and analysis of global hydroclimate are crucial steps in enhancing our understanding of water availability, droughts, floods, and various hydrological phenomena that significantly impact ecosystems, agriculture, water resources, and human societies worldwide. Hydroclimate simulation entails the utilization of sophisticated mathematical models to represent the intricate interactions among the atmosphere, land surface, and oceans, which collectively drive the complex water cycle on a global scale. Some well-known hydroclimate models employed in this research include the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model, the Community Earth System Model (CESM), and the Variable Infiltration Capacity (VIC) model. The continuous development and improvement of these hydroclimate models are of the utmost importance in gaining deeper insights into global hydroclimate changes and making more accurate predictions about future shifts. Conducting in-depth analyses based on observational data and the outputs from global hydroclimate models are essential steps in exploring the underlying mechanisms behind hydroclimate changes. Such comprehensive analyses help researchers and decision-makers comprehend the drivers of extreme weather events, such as hurricanes, cyclones, and heatwaves, allowing for more effective mitigation and adaptation strategies. Overall, the combined efforts of hydroclimate simulation and analysis serve as a powerful toolset in tackling the pressing challenges posed by global hydroclimate changes. By gaining a comprehensive understanding of these phenomena, we can better prepare for and respond to water-related hazards, safeguard ecosystems, optimize water resource management, and foster resilience in human communities facing the impacts of a changing hydroclimate.

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. Atmosphere 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 2400 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.
