Advances in Hydro-Geological Research in Arid and Semi-arid Areas
Recent advancements in hydro-geology allow for a better management of water resources and provide a strategy for overcoming issues in the future. In terms of concepts, models, and technology, the hydro-geologist community has created interdisciplinary approaches using tools of various sizes. Publishing studies highlighting developments and trends in the hydro-sciences is possible using remote sensing, GIS and artificial intelligence methods.
Studies utilizing supercomputer platforms, computer clusters, or other hardware are also of interest to this Topic since they can be excellent instruments for calibrating huge data gathered from field research or finely detailed laboratory trials.
The goal of this Topic is to offer a venue for the quick, open publication of peer-reviewed research on the hydro-geology and water resources of semiarid and arid regions. Topics to be covered in this topic include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Water management;
- Drought risk assessment;
- Groundwater optimal use;
- Water deficit;
- Advanced artificial intelligence;
- Remote sensing;
- Rainfall harvesting;
- Geographical information system;
- Spatial planning and governance for climate adaptation.
