HESS cover
Executive editors: Erwin Zehe, Theresa Blume, Hannah Cloke & Alberto Guadagnini
Hydrology and Earth System Sciences (HESS) is an international two-stage open-access journal for the publication of original research in hydrology. HESS encourages and supports fundamental and applied research that advances the understanding of hydrological systems, their role in providing water for ecosystems and society, and the role of the water cycle in the functioning of the Earth system. A multi-disciplinary approach is encouraged that broadens the hydrological perspective and the advancement of hydrological science through integration with other cognate sciences and cross-fertilization across disciplinary boundaries.
