The Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau (QTP) is known as “Asian water tower”, and itprovides water resources for large populations in many important major river basins in Asia. Climate change has been increasingly impacting the hydrological cycle in the QTP by altering atmosphere conditions, cryosphere components and landscapes. Focusing on understanding the effect of climate change on hydrological processes and water resources in the QTP, this Special Issue prepares to publish state-of-the-art research articles or review papers that detect changes in climate, cryosphere and hydrological elements on different spatial and temporal scales, revealing the causes for the water resources changes, and proposing prediction methods for hydrological elements under climate changes in the QTP.
The Special Issue covers the following areas:

  • Observed Changes in climate, cryosphere and Hydrological processes in the QTP;
  • Climate change impacts on runoff, evaporation, surface/ground water systems in the QTP, etc.;
  • Effects of cryosphere changes on the hydrological and water resources in the QTP
  • New methods and technologies for investigating hydrological responses to climate changes in the QTP.
