Special Issue "Catchments Hydrology and Sediment Dynamics: Concepts, Measuring and Modelling"
A special issue of Hydrology (ISSN 2306-5338).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2018).
Interests: river hydraulics and hydro-morphology; bed-load sediment transport; scour processes; river morphology; sediment yield from mountain catchments; flood risk
The societal demand for safety from natural/hydrogeological hazards is progressively increasing, as a result of a changing regime of peak events and a general weakness of the built environment. The hydrographic catchments is a suitable framework for analysis, but the basin evolution results from the spatial and temporal composition of a variety of processes taking place at highly variable scales. Therefore, models to be run at the scale of a river catchments require physically-based parameterization that can be only obtained from studies of processes at a local scale, as well as of the interconnections between these processes. Moreover, we are not talking just about water, because sediment is a major player of which the importance is also acknowledged by European Directives.
The study of water and sediment motion in hydrographic basins thus requires multiscale modelling approaches towards reliable predictions, deep phenomenological investigations, and advanced measurement methods.
This Special Issue will join contributions that address the common topic of catchments hydrology and sediment transport from a variety of approached, including field and laboratory experiments, as well as local and distributed numerical modelling. We welcome different kinds of manuscripts, including research papers and technical notes. As a further ‘bridge across scales’, both reviews and vision papers from experienced scholars and research contributions from early-stage researchers are desired.

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.
