Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Despite huge advances made by technology, river monitoring is still a challenge for hydrologists and environmental agencies. This issue is becoming even more critical in the present century alongside the increasing number of extreme events that many countries are experiencing. Therefore, we clearly need new methodologies and tools to advance the current knowledge on available water resources and to monitor extreme events. In this context, emerging innovative solutions may overcome some of the existing limitations of traditional monitoring techniques.

The aim of the present Special Issue is to promote the identification of the most innovative new solutions for river monitoring that can be used to increase our knowledge on water availability and control extreme events. In particular, contributions should aim to address the following topics:

  • The use of remote-sensing approaches for hydrological, hydraulic and morphological monitoring;
  • Innovative methodologies for measuring/modelling/estimating stream flow;
  • New methods or technologies to cope with data-scarce environments;
  • Use of camera systems for river monitoring;
  • Inter-comparison of innovative and classical models and approaches;
  • Monitoring of water quality and quantity;
  • Biomonitoring and bioindicators used for river ecosystems.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Hydrology 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 1600 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.
