- Since, even a minor change in hydraulic variables will lead to tangible changes in water resources system operation, therefore, the effects of climate change on rivers were briefly considered with a conceptual look. In the next step, because the researches in the form of paper have considerably been useful in development and enhancement of climate change effect on rivers, a statistical overview was made superior papers published in this field. Papers related to the current subject have been published in the knowledge database (web of science) of institute of scientific information (ISI) from 1980- 2014. Among all the articles that have been printed in this relation, (N = 763), 100 top papers were classified and considered with the highest number of identifying references and in different statistical opinions such as the number of references, the distribution of time and place, the introduction of top journals and Etc. The results reveal that in the field of climate changes impact, the researchers have considerably focused on respectively the river hydrology (40%), water resources and ecosystem (25%), surface and subsurface water resources (17%), sedimentation and erosion (12%) and the quality of the River (6%).
