Water scarcity, hydrometeorologic extremes and water pollution are major environmental threats affecting the biotic/abiotic status of surface and groundwater resources in river basins and the societies within them, through the disturbance of the ecosystem services that people rely on. Future climate uncertainty adds complexity to the river basin managers’ work in planning sustainable management schemes to tackle the above water issues.Hydrologic river basin models are valuable tools in finding ways to combat environmental problems and mitigate the impact of future climate and socio-economic changes on water resources. Especially in the past decade remote sensing data that have become increasingly available to the hydrologic community promise to improve models in representing actual weather/climate processes, and land and water management practices, towards an overall improvement of future planning and management of river basins. This Special Issue of Water is envisioned to showcase the state-of-the-art in the adaptation and use of remotely sensed data for hydrologic models at different scales and climatic regions and their application. We hope that new data/methods/models will help us to remark some progress in tackling real river basin problems and possible issues that need more focused research.
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 1600 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.
