Special Issue "Groundwater Hydrological Model Simulation"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (5 September 2022) | Viewed by 5200
Groundwater numerical modeling is an effective approach to simulating and analyzing the groundwater dynamics under varying conditions.
Regional models are commonly used to simulate the conditions of watersheds that vary due to climatic changes or anthropic modification. Local scale-models are widely used to investigate contaminant transport or to predict the effect of ground heat exchange on the groundwater temperature.
Despite their wide usage, numerical models need to be supported by correct conceptualization of the natural system, proper selection of the computer code and solver, and an effective calibration process.
This Special Issue aims to gather new contributions emphasizing different aspects of groundwater modeling, focusing on the latest developments and applications for water resources management, including the use of new computer tools, such as open source platforms for groundwater modeling or artificial intelligence to explore data and expedite the calibration process. Case studies involving the use of models by local government agencies are especially welcome. We invite you to submit your latest research works on subjects including, but not limited to, the following:
- Regional groundwater models accounting for watershed modifications
- Coupling surface water/groundwater models
- Use of groundwater models to understand the impact of climate change on water resources
- Groundwater models as tools to ensure the sustainable use of water resources
- Local-scale groundwater models in urban areas
- Open source software and tools to manage groundwater models
- Integration of groundwater model results in GIS systems
- Comparative studies among groundwater models and machine learning techniques
- Machine learning techniques to improve model calibration
Looking forward to receiving your contribution.

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. 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 2200 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.
