Special Issue "Hydrology of Urban Catchments"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2018)
Urban catchments are complex hydrological systems due to the close interaction between natural and anthropogenic processes characterized by a high temporal and spatial variability. At the same time, an efficient design and management of resilient and sustainable drainage systems requires a good knowledge of the hydrological processes involved in urban catchments. It is therefore imperative to develop new numerical tools able to represent those processes in order to accurate simulate, predict and mitigate future flood events.
The aim of this Special Issue is thus to publish recent advances and developments in the numerical simulation of floods, data acquisition, flood forecasting and characterization of hydrological processes in urban catchments.
We encourage the submission of original research, synthetic reviews or case study papers using both, numerical modelling or experimental techniques in order to study any of the following topics:
- Rainfall runoff simulation in urban catchments
- Sustainable drainage design and management in urban catchments
- Flood forecasting in urban catchments
- Characterisation of urban drainage structures as gullies, manholes, grates, storm water tanks, among others.
- Urban resilience
- Rainfall variability in urbanized environments
- Characterisation of sediment and pollutant wash-off loads in urban drainage systems
- Calibration, validation and uncertainty characterisation in urban drainage models
The accepted papers will be published as open access ensuring widespread availability.

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. Geosciences 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 850 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.
