Hydrologic and water quality modeling are critical for water systems management objectives such as mitigation of the risks from climatic extremes, regional planning, and pollution control. Contemporary water resources management approaches incorporate ecological needs, food and energy resources, and resilience and sustainability of the system along with conventional quantity, flow, and quality considerations. New computing, modeling, information technology, and data acquisition methods are becoming available that have significantly improved our understanding and the ability to tackle challenges. These changes require us to revisit the modeling practice and developing integrated simulation-optimization frameworks for tackling increasingly complex and wicked problems.
This Special Issue invites a broad range of papers related to advances in hydrologic, hydrodynamic, and water quality modeling in watersheds. Of particular interest are innovations in the application of remote sensing (e.g., aerial or satellite) at any stage of model development and use, model calibration, validation, sensitivity & uncertainty analysis, assessment of ecological and socioeconomic challenges, trans-jurisdictional water system modeling, impacts of climate change and other nonstationary stressors, and integrated system modeling (e.g., hydrologic/ecological/social/economic systems interactions). Articles on basic research, reviews, and case studies are invited. Articles should highlight or suggest advances from the current state-of-practice. The Special Issue is of interest to a broad range of audiences, including hydrologists, scientists, practitioners, regulators, engineers, geologists, policymakers, and modelers.

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. Land 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 2600 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.
