Special Issue "Global Warming & Water"
A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601). This special issue belongs to the section "Climate Change and Health".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2021.
We are organizing a Special Issue the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health calling for contributions about the global change effects on water events, either scarceness or flooding, which impacts on all aspects of society. The venue is a peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes articles and communications in the interdisciplinary area of environmental health sciences and public health. For detailed information on the journal, we refer you to https://0-www-mdpi-com.brum.beds.ac.uk/journal/ijerph.
According to IPCC, climate change has dramatic effects on water resources. Nowadays, scientific evidence shows that global warming is occurring, and the most critical effects are observed in water quantity and quality. High temperatures increase evaporation that rises precipitation causing huge storms and floods. In contrast, the drought severity impacts agriculture and food security, imbalances ecosystems, and affects human/animal health. Water management practices are quite advanced in developed countries, but others make efforts to overcome the challenges.
With this Special Issue, we invite you to submit high-quality original research articles or reviews to extend the current state of knowledge. Those include technical and social findings. All manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by experts in the field and would be due no later than the end of August 2020.
