Integrated catchment modelling is defined as the simulation of the linkage between the several sub-models, simulating processes of the water cycle (rural and urban) starting from the meteorological input, until the final recipient. These integrated catchment studies can be used to plan projects, to optimise systems, as well as to evaluate the need of certain measures. However, the stepwise process of abstraction from reality to model representation with its simplifications and idealisations of the real systems comes with the unavoidable occurrence of uncertainties. The definition, recognition and consideration of these uncertainties is, therefore, of the utmost importance for applying such models and for the interpretation of model results, in real world problems.
In this Special Issue we would like to invite research on integrated catchment studies for both quantity and quality modelling, specially focusing on the quantification of the uncertainty. Manuscripts which are coping with the following topics are specifically invited:
quantification and the propagation of uncertainty at significant temporal and spatial scales in catchments,
approaches for minimising uncertainties in integrated models,
techniques for model reduction of computationally expensive models,
real world case studies on integrated catchment modelling,
tools, which can be deployed by end users considering all aspects of modelling uncertainty and hence they are able to be used in the context of the decision-making process.

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.
