Interests: The main research interests of the research group reside in the development of stochastic methods that characterize the spatial and temporal variability inherent to natural systems, in particular related to the water cycle. We use numerical techniques using high-order, nonparametric statistics. These allow us to analyze complex datasets such as remote sensing data or the outputs of complex models (climate models or flow/transport models). The work pursued is at the frontier between Earth modeling and computer science, with a strong emphasis on stochastic models, training images and example-based modeling.

Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In this special issue of Remote Sensing we aim to collect contributions integrating satellite based remote sensing data into distributed hydrologic models using suitable or new spatial performance metrics (such as SSIM and SPAEF etc.) to evaluate spatial pattern agreement of satellite based estimations and hydrological predictions. Reviews and case studies reporting recent advancements in spatial metrics and remote sensing for precipitation, land surface temperature, actual evapotranspiration estimation, soil moisture, snow coverage, terrestrial water storage (MODIS, AMSR-E, Sentinel, SMOS, SMAP, GRACE etc.) are welcome. We are particularly interested in how satellite based data can improve spatial-temporal behavior of distributed hydrologic models and how they can be used in calibration and validation of hydrologic models. Also we aim to attract novel approaches for parameter regionalization and model parametrizations adding flexibility to the model structures to fit their outputs to the remote sensing data.

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. Hydrology is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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). 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.
