Although considerable improvement has been made in hydrologic sciences, and the representation of the processes within the models, this has also led to increased data requirements for the spatial representation of a study area and model parameterization. In the past decade, remote sensing data have become increasingly available to the hydrologic community for developing a representative spatially-distributed model for assessing the impacts of landuse change, and land and water management practices on water resources at the river basin scale. Further, data on hydrologic state variables, such as evapotranspiration from thermal sensors and soil moisture from microwave sensors, are also being explored for calibration and validation of hydrological models, either independently or within a data assimilation framework. Many research challenges are being actively explored, which aim toward calibration of hydrological models for watersheds and river basins taking into account the true spatial variability of observed processes as opposed to lumped calibration of the model parameters at the point of discharge measurements. 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 modelling using SWAT at different scales and climatic regions for model parameterization, calibration, validation and data assimilation. We sincerely hope that these research papers would address the lacuna that exists in the use of remote sensing data with the hydrologic models, methods to overcome them and identify issues that need further 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.
