Effects of Climate Change on Geomorphology, Water Geochemistry and Pollution
Climate change can have numerous repercussions that are not always thoroughly identified and investigated. In this context, there is a need to assess climate change and, if necessary, atmospheric circulation as a function of changes attributable to cross-cutting themes ranging from geomorphology to water geochemistry and public health. In particular, it is interesting to analyse the influence of climate change and atmospheric circulation in relation to aridity with particular attention to erosive processes also analysed using remote sensing techniques. In addition, this SI aims to evaluate the effects of changes in temperature, precipitation, humidity, wind, etc., on the chemistry of water resources, as well as in relation to pollution by assessing whether it can be favoured by changes in climatic factors. Lastly, we would like to emphasise the transversal nature of the topics dealt with, in order to be able to understand the effects of climate change in the broadest possible way, assessing the effects on human health, also in relation to the increased circulation of infectious agents and the appearance of new pathogens due to changed climatic conditions. The goal of this Topic is to collect papers to provide insights on the effects of climate change, on various issues such as geomorphological modifications, changes in water geochemistry and water pollution, as well as the effect of climate on human health.
This Topic will welcome manuscripts that link the following themes:
- Impact of climate change on water geochemistry;
- Effects of climate change on geomorphological dynamics;
- Analysis of the relationship between pollution and climate change;
- Assessment of radioactive pollution in water due to climate change;
- Interactions between climate change and human health;
- Spatial statistical models that can predict the effects of climate change at a geomorphological and geochemical level.
We look forward to receiving your original research articles and reviews.
