Basin hydrology is related to the soil-atmosphere interaction driven by several blended processes constrained by the space-time variability of precipitation and soil moisture, along with the overland flow and flood routing in natural channels. The emerging technologies for the monitoring and prediction of the spatial and temporal distribution of rainfall and soil moisture over a catchment, as well as the hillslope and river runoff, are of considerable interest to predict the hydrological response of a catchment. In this context, this Special Issue aims to shed light on the more recent advances in ground observations and remote sensing products, as well as the benefit that comes from the integration between technological innovation and the development of new ideas in hydrology science. Specifically, the Special Issue invites theoretical and applied contributions dealing with the development and comparisons of different monitoring procedures based on ground and satellite data for: (1) improving the representation of the rainfall field and soil-moisture at catchment scale; (2) monitoring the discharge in poorly equipped natural channels; (3) identifying the core hydrological processes in the runoff production; and (4) enhancing hydrological and hydraulic models aimed at the definition of hydraulic risk.

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. Water is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2000 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.
