Modeling Water Science for Impact

Special Issue

Deadline for full paper submission: 1st February 2019
Submit Now

This Special Issue aims to synthesize water modeling research on pertinent environmental challenges.  We invite authors to reflect on uncertainties related to the future of water and the role of modeling in addressing and experimenting with future uncertainties. We welcome in particular interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary studies.

We invite manuscripts that contribute to work on water-related modeling related to the following themes include:

  • Risk assessments of hydro-climatic extremes under climate change and human interventions
  • Usage for policy instruments (governance, regulations and market-based solutions) for surface water and groundwater management
  • Integrating water-related challenges of food and energy.
  • Implications for addressing UN SDGs
  • Uncertainty pertaining to model structure, parameterization, future water-related scenarios and decision-making for water resource management
  • Water-related risks, security, and conflicts across scales including, instability, violent conflict, migration and human displacement, transboundary water disputes
  • Water quality issues for wastewater treatment
  • Analyses of future trends

Journal of Integrative Environmental Sciences

Bringing together perspectives from a wide range of disciplines and methodologies in both the social and natural sciences we develop integrative knowledge about the processes responsible for climate change.
