Hydrology Research Special Issue on

Advances in Water Science Research




Over the past 100 years, issues related to insufficient water resources are becoming increasingly serious and are associated with the impacts of climate change and human activity. This added strain brings new challenges to the sustainable use of water resources and water management. As a subject, water science has gained increasing relevance in the last 20 years as it permeates all aspects of society, ecology, environment, resource utilization, national security and the economy. Accordingly, many new disciplines and research directions have derived from water science which has become a hot spot in academic research and scientific and technological application.

The China Water Forum (CWF) is the largest conference focused on water science. It is sponsored by the China Society of Natural Resources, to promote research, discussion, and resolution of issues related to hydrology, water resources, and the water eco-environment. Over 1000 professors, engineers, and graduate students from more than 100 universities or institutes attend the forum every year. The forum gathers almost all researchers who are interested in hydrology research and management of water resources and water eco-environment. The Special Issue on Advances in Hydrology and Water Resources in China was organised based on the last China Water Forum (17th) and achieved great success. To promote the upcoming 18th China Water Forum, IWA Publishing has organised the Special Issue on Advances in Water Science Research for Hydrology Research. In this Special Issue, we welcome submissions that involve water science theory and technology from researchers who focus on water resource issues in China and around the world.

We are pleased to invite you to submit a manuscript to Hydrology Research for peer review and possible publication in a Special Issue entitled Advances in Water Science Research.


Relevant topics include:

  • The hydrological cycle and hydrological modeling
  • Eco-hydrology and water environment
  • Water resources regulation and management
  • Flood and drought disaster prevention
  • Smart water
  • Global change and hydroclimate
  • Groundwater and pollution control
  • Remote sensing, modeling, and new technology in hydrology
  • Water-Food-Energy Nexus
  • Watershed management and water resources security
