Journal of Water & Climate Change Special Issue on:

Assessment of Climate Change Impact on Water Resources Using Machine Learning Algorithms



Water resources and many other aspects of life are influenced by global climate change in many developing and developed countries worldwide. For instance, its inevitable effects can be seen as the untimely occurrence of droughts or floods in different parts of the world. Thus, research on climate change has become essential.

In several parts of the globe, hydro-climatic variables, such as precipitation and temperature, are affected due to the consequences of climate change. In this regard, General Circulation Models (GCMs) are utilized to study future temperature and precipitation fluctuations. Assessment of climate change impacts on water resources can be facilitated using available approaches, such as machine learning (ML), fuzzy logic, and Multicriterion Decision Making, to name a few.

This Special Issue explores the utility of ML algorithms and allied techniques in studying those aspects. It is postulated that the proposed Special Issue can significantly help researchers and policy-makers while modeling and making water management-related decisions. In addition to applying ML models to the impact the assessment of climate change on water resources, comprehensive review-type papers on the topic are also welcomed.

We invite prospective authors to submit a manuscript to the Journal of Water & Climate Change for possible publication in the Special Issue.


Topics include (but are not limited to):

  • Impact of climate change on hydrological extreme events (e.g., floods and droughts)
  • Impact of climate change on river water quantity and quality
  • Impact of climate change on groundwater quantity and quality
  • Statistical computation for hydrological assessment of climate change
  • Novel downscaling techniques
  • The ranking or clustering GCMs
  • Climate change impacts on water supply


Key dates:

Deadline for manuscript submission: September 30, 2023

Expected publication: Articles will be published online as soon as possible after acceptance.
