water resource systems planning and management issues are often very complex. The pressures on water resources are increasing with the expanding scale of global development involving ecological and hydrological consequences in river basins and groundwater aquifers, and water quality deterioration.
All this leads to the increasing need for investigating the effects of different human influences and impacts on the hydrological regime and on water quality like as land-use changes, climatic variability and climate changes, and intensified water and land-use practices. Moreover economic, environmental, and social issues are more and more considered in water resources research. In this context computer-based models can help to choose the right plans, designs, and policies to obtain the desired impacts.
In the last years, the advances in computer techniques allowed the water scientists to develop complex models at different scales to support water resources planning and management.
This special issue is focused on the recent advances on models and methods for water resource modelling. In particular the following issues will be discussed: 1) Basin-wide water resources planning; 2) Watershed management; 3) Flood forecasting; 4) Droughts; 5) Climate changes impacts on flood risk and water resources; 6) Reservoir operation and management; 7) River morphology and sediment transport; 8) River water quality; 9) Irrigation.
Researchers working on these topics are invited to contribute.

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 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.
