Special Issue "Urban Catchment: Rainfall–Runoff Issues and Responses"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 August 2020.
Interests: urban hydrology; urban runoff monitoring and modeling; emerging contaminants in urban runoff; pollutant transport; water-sensitive urban design for water management and reuse.
Rapid urbanisation across the globe in the last few decades has changed the rainfall–runoff response in many catchments. Along with population growth, numerous changes in the landscape and impervious ratio in urban areas have also occurred. The change in the landscape in many cities has had a tremendous impact on urban hydrology. This includes changes in rainfall–runoff balance and changes in physical, chemical and biological aspects of water quality. Besides this, urban flooding has become more frequent due to an increase in imperviousness and runoff peak flow. This Special Issue seeks to highlight studies on urban rainfall–runoff monitoring and modelling, the role of imperviousness in urban water quality, the adoption of water-sensitive urban designs to mitigate water quality problems, stormwater harvesting, analytical techniques to examine these linkages and water management, and water policy.

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.
