Thematic series on Impacts and Consequences of Changing Climate and Land use on Hydrology

Geoscience Letters welcomes submissions to the new thematic series "Impacts and Consequences of Changing Climate and Land use on Hydrology".

Climate and land use around the world is changing rapidly than expected. This creates stress on water availability. Increasing atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations lead to global warming and an intensification of the water cycle as well as increase in population is forcing us to maximum utilization of land and make change in land use. Hence, there is need for decision makers to better under the science, impacts, and consequences of changing climate and land use on hydrology.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Climate change
  • Land use
  • Water availability
  • Greenhouse gases
  • Global warming
  • Water cycle
  • Hydrology
