Special Issue "Using Large-Domain Hydrologic Modeling to Understand the Effects of Climate and Land Use on Water Availability"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (10 September 2020).
Interests: water resources engineering; statistical hydrology; estimating ungaged streamflows; statistical analysis; computer programming; climate change analysis; crop water modeling
In recent years, with advances in process modeling and computer resources, there has been a push to develop large-domain models of hydrologic systems to support on-going water resources management. In this special issue, we solicit papers exploring how these large-domain model applications can be used to understand the effects of climate and land use on water availability.
The term ‘water availability’ is intended to capture analyses of all aspects of the hydrologic cycle, considering such components as streamflow, baseflow, groundwater, stream temperature, soil moisture, sediments, and water quality constituents. Large-domain models are designed to characterize hydrologic conditions across large countries or continents (e.g., the United States or Europe). As models are developed and deployed, they are often tuned to characterize a particular aspect of the hydrologic cycle, be it floods, droughts, water quality, or water use. Whether simulating retrospectively or forecasting, these model applications seek to understand what new insights on the hydrologic system these large-extent models provide from a scientific and a management perspective.
This special issue allows us, as a field, a unique opportunity to consider how large-domain applications of models advance the hydrologic sciences and inform water resources management.

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 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 1800 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.
