Special Issue Information
We are pleased to announce a call for contributions on topics related to 'River flow monitoring: needs, advances and challenges', for submission to a Special Issue of the journal Water. River flow monitoring is of paramount importance. In order to plan water resources it is needed to have timely, accurate data with an appropriate temporal and spatial resolution; however, data are not always available.
This Special Issue seeks to publish articles that demonstrate needs, advances and challenges on river flow monitoring, and those that explain the need of data and how to collect it. We especially encourage papers that present novel techniques that improve the quality of data but also simplify installation and maintenance, as well as devices that are proven to work under extreme events.
Of particular interest are research articles and commentaries related to river flow monitoring and the following aspects:
- Current monitoring technologies: improvements and challenges;
- How data is used in water resources management and planning, from both modelling and institutional perspectives.
- Comparisons between different monitoring technologies and that stress their advantages and disadvantages.
- New technologies for river monitoring.
- How to bring new technologies into operation.
- Artificial intelligence (AI) in river monitoring and alternative methods.
- Research articles that report technical advances are also welcomed.
