Special Issue "Radar Hydrology and QPE Uncertainties"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 May 2020.
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Precipitation is a main driver of numerous hydrologic processes, and the collection of reliable precipitation information with a proper space and time scale is a key element of water resources management. For several decades, researchers have used weather radars for weather monitoring, which has provided quantitative rainfall information with the enhanced space and time resolutions required for hydrologic and meteorological applications. These quantitative precipitation estimates (QPE) have become a primary dataset that helps to represent the complexities associated with the space and time variability of hydrologic processes through distributed modeling procedures. However, radar QPE often leads to undesirable errors in hydrologic simulation/prediction because of the uncertainty associated with radar sampling geometry and many other factors.
The goal of this Special Issue is to embrace and connect a variety of established and ongoing yet scattered research activities regarding precipitation estimation and subsequent hydrologic applications, as well as the uncertainty characterization of precipitation estimates and its propagation through hydrologic modeling procedures. We encourage contributions from the following topics:
- Radar-based precipitation estimation and analysis;
- Radar-based hydrologic modeling and forecasting;
- Analysis of precipitation estimation uncertainties associated with (space and time) scale-dependent variability;
- Spatiotemporal modeling of precipitation estimation uncertainties;
- Radar-based short-term precipitation forecasting and data assimilation;
- Radar-based analysis of extreme events;
- Urban hydrologic applications using weather radar;
- Probabilistic (e.g., ensemble) approaches in radar-based hydrologic applications;
- Data-intensive techniques (e.g., machine learning) in precipitation estimation and hydrologic applications;
- Time and space variability of precipitation and hydrologic processes

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Atmosphere 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 1500 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
