Call for Papers
Call for Papers for “Hydroepidemiology: A pathway to link hydrology and climate with human health”
Submission acceptance begins: 18 November 2013
Submission deadline: 28 May 2014
Guest Editor: Antarpreet Jutla
Manuscripts are invited for a special section of Water Resources Research on hydroepidemiology. The Special Section will include papers at the boundaries of hydroclimate and water-related public health domains, which address how hydrology can help understand and predict disease outbreak. Papers will deal with hydrologic understanding of disease such as (but not limited to) cholera, Schistosomiasis, malaria, west Nile virus, yellow fever, Chagas’ disease and dengue. The papers in this section of WRR will fall under one or more of the following themes:
(1) Impact of hydroclimatic variability on outbreak and transmission of water-related diseases.
(2) Innovative and judicious use of new technologies such as satellite remote sensing to quantify disease
outbreak and establish linkages.
(3) Role of floods and drought in creating environmental conditions favorable for pathogen growth and then disease spread across spatial and temporal scales
Manuscripts should be submitted through the WRR GEMS submission site (http://wrr-submit.agu.org/cgi-bin/main.plex).

Call for Papers for “Eco-hydrology of Semiarid Environments: Confronting Mathematical Models with Ecosystem Complexity”
Submission acceptance begins: June 1, 2013
Submission deadline: March 30, 2014
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.
