Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The purpose of the proposed special issue is to publish selected papers presented in the international conference “Advanced Methods for Flood Estimation in a Variable and Changing Environment” which has been held in Volos, Greece, 24-26 October 2012 (http://www.cost-floodfreq.eu/activities/conf-worksh/advanced-methods-for-flood-estimation-in-a-variable-and-changing-environment and other independent papers, after peer review. The conference was part of the activities of the COST Action ES0901 “European Procedures for Flood Frequency Estimation—FloodFreq” (http://www.cost-floodfreq.eu/home ). The main objective of the Action is to undertake a Pan-European comparison and evaluation of methods for flood frequency estimation under the various climatologic and geographic conditions found in Europe, and different levels of data availability. A scientific framework for assessing the ability of these methods to predict the impact of environmental change on future flood frequency characteristics (flood occurrence and magnitude) is developed and tested. The aim of the conference was to be a forum for the presentation of the findings of the Action as well as research from scientists/engineers, not affiliated with the Action, from Europe and to instigate discussion on the flood estimation and research.

The papers, presented in the session, cover a wide range of topics such as statistical methods for flood frequency estimation, flood frequency analysis using rainfall-runoff methods, regional flood frequency analysis, predicting design floods in ungauged basins, analysis of historical floods, predicting and adapting to flood hazard and risk in a changing environment, statistical downscaling methods for projection of hydrological extremes, risk based design for flood management in a nonstationary environment.

The submission and reviewing process will be the regular process followed by the Water and it will be supervised by the two Guest Editors. The selected papers for the special issue will undergo peer review and only those passed the review process and they are up to the standards of Water will be published.

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Water is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs).
