Welcome from the Conference Chair

It is a great pleasure to welcome you to the 1st International Electronic Conference on the Hydrological Cycle (CHyCle-2017), whose main aim is to advance towards a better understanding of the Hydrological Cycle, including its observed changes and projections under future climate.

As the first conference in an annual series, the range of topics will be very general, but covering mainly the following subtopics:

i) Global Distribution of Water Vapor: evaporation and precipitation, water vapor flux and divergence, long-range transport of water vapor, clouds,

ii) Source-Sink Relationships and Methodologies: methods used to establish source-receptor relationships, analytical or box models, numerical water vapor tracers, physical water vapor tracers (isotopes),

iii) Global Source and Sink Regions of Moisture and Processes: identifying large-scale oceanic sources, terrestrial sources, and sinks of moisture, investigating the mechanisms associated with source and sink regions,

iv) Extreme Events: Atmospheric Rivers, floods, evaporation Hot Spots, anomalies of moisture transport linked to Drought Periods,

v) Low-Level Jets, Warm Pools, Monsoons and their role in the transport of moisture,

vi) the identification and characteristics of moisture sources, megadroughts, and megapluvials within the scope of Paleoclimatic studies,

vii) implications of Climate Change Impact on Hydrology: changes in water vapor, changes in large-scale circulation related to moisture transport, changes in precipitation, aridity, evapotranpiration, soil moisture, streamflow, cloud distribution, and other usable water sources (snow, lake levels, reservoirs, glaciers, etc.).

viii) impacts of climate change in Soil Hydrological Processes, with special focus on forest hydrology, including experimental plots and catchments.

ix) Eco-hydrological modelling at different spatial scales.

x) Water resources management and impacts of climate change, including adaptation strategies, with special focus in the Mediterranean region.

 

This is a virtual conference sponsored by the open access journal Water (http://www.mdpi.com/journal/water)

The participation is free of charge—both for authors and attendees. Selected papers will be published in the journal Water, through invitation from the CHyCle-2017 conference chair.

Water (ISSN 2073-4441; CODEN: WATEGH) is an open access journal on water science and technology, including the ecology and management of water resources, and is published monthly online by MDPI.

Open Access: free for readers, with publishing fees paid by authors or their institutions.

High visibility: indexed by the Science Citation Index Expanded (Web of Science), Scopus (Elsevier) and other databases.

Rapid publication: manuscripts are peer-reviewed and a first decision provided to authors approximately 29 days after submission; acceptance to publication is undertaken in 7 days (median values for papers published in this journal in 2016).

Impact Factor: 1.687 (2015); 5-Year Impact Factor: 1.912 (2015)
