Welcome from the Chairs

Welcome from the Conference Chair

It is a great pleasure to welcome you to the 1st International Electronic Conference on the Hydrological Cycle (CHyCle-1), 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,

ii) Source-Sink Relationships: 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: oceanic sources, terrestrial sources,

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 Palaeoclimatic studies,

vii) implications of Climate Change for Hydrology: changes in water vapor, changes in large-scale circulation related to moisture transport, changes in precipitation, aridity, evapotranpiration, soil moisture, streamflow 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-1 conference chair.

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)

Reference numbers should be placed in square brackets [ ], and placed before the punctuation; for example [4] or [1-3], and all the references should be listed separately and as the last section at the end of the manuscript.
  • Authors List and Affiliation Format: Authors' full first and last names must be given. Abbreviated middle name can be added. For papers written by various contributors a corresponding author must be designated. The PubMed/MEDLINE format is used for affiliations: complete street address information including city, zip code, state/province, country, and email address should be added. All authors who contributed significantly to the manuscript (including writing a section) should be listed on the first page of the manuscript, below the title of the article. Other parties, who provided only minor contributions, should be listed under Acknowledgments only. A minor contribution might be a discussion with the author, reading through the draft of the manuscript, or performing English corrections.
  • Figures, Schemes and Tables: Authors are encouraged to prepare figures and schemes in color. Full color graphics will be published free of charge. Figure and schemes must be numbered (Figure 1, Scheme I, Figure 2, Scheme II, etc.) and a explanatory title must be added. Tables should be inserted into the main text, and numbers and titles for all tables supplied. All table columns should have an explanatory heading. Please supply legends for all figures, schemes and tables. The legends should be prepared as a separate paragraph of the main text and placed in the main text before a table, a figure or a scheme.
