Call for Papers
Call for Papers for “Eco-hydrology of Semiarid Environments: Confronting Mathematical Models with Ecosystem Complexity”
Submission acceptance begins: June 1, 2013
Submission deadline: December 31, 2013
Guest Editors:Shmuel Assouline, Tal Svoray, Gaby Katul
Manuscripts are invited for a special section of Water Resources Research on the eco-hydrology of semi-arid environments. Papers that address eco-hydrological processes and vegetation patterns, flow processes and water regime, mathematical modeling in ecohydrology, coupling water to carbon fluxes and biomass, and novel experimental methods will be welcomed.
Manuscripts should be submitted through the WRR GEMS submission site (http://wrr-submit.agu.org/cgi-bin/main.plex). For additional information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Call for Papers for “Climate, Hydrology and Water Resources of Eastern Africa”
Submission acceptance begins 7 February 2013
Submission deadline through 30 June 2013
Guest Editors: Mekonnen Gebremichael, University of Connecticut; Semu Ayalew Moges, Addis Ababa University
The hydrology of the Eastern Africa region is uniquely characterized by monsoonal climate, long dry season, and tremendous spatial variability in runoff generation. The region’s climate exhibits of one of the world’s largest variability, causing large hydrologic variability, and frequent droughts and floods. Yet, the available scientific evidences are not sufficient enough to building scientific base to understand the climate, hydrology and water resources variability (and the interactions among them) of the region. Lack of extensive ground-based data has been one of the challenges. Recent advances in remote sensing, modeling capabilities, and field campaigns by international and multi-institution collaborative research teams have spurred research activities. Beyond its global significance for extreme weather prediction studies in the rest of the world (e.g., easterly weaves) and climate change and variability, advancing knowledge of climate, hydrology and water resources of this region has been a decisive impact on the economy and food security of the people living the region.
Manuscripts are to be submitted through the AGU’s Geophysical Electronic Manuscript Submissions System (GEMS) web site for Water Resources Research. For additional information please contact: Pam Calliham, Editor Support (email@example.com).
