Topical Collection in Hydrology: Feature Papers of Hydrology
Mountains and other sloping lands are complex hydrological systems that provide water for more than 3 billion people to drink, grow food, generate hydropower, and sustain industries. Even so, hydrological processes are not well understood. Published research on the hydrology and sedimentology of mountains and hills is critically needed to safeguard their function as water towers of the world. Manuscripts are, therefore, sought on water and sediment transport in complex sloping landscapes, including but not limited to landscape connectivity, runoff generation processes (saturation excess in humid and Hortonian runoff in arid climates), perched water tables, subsurface and pipe flow, self-organization, various forms of soil loss such as gully, rill sheet, and subsurface erosion, sediment deposition, and effectiveness of best management practices. Experimental studies, literature reviews, theoretical applications, and validated spatially distributed models will be accepted for review.

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).
