An operational system for flood forecasts and simulations has been widely used to minimize catastrophic impacts on humans, infrastructure, and agricultural systems across the globe. Rainfall-runoff models are often employed in flood forecasting systems and applied for assessing the associated risks and impacts. Hence, accurate and reliable runoff predictions by the rainfall-runoff models should be a core component for flood risk management. However, since most catchments around the world still remain ungauged, identifying parameters of the rainfall-runoff models is still a challenge that may lead to substantial uncertainty in runoff predictions. The lack of local hydrologic observations has been always an issue for hydrologic modelers and analyzers to identify parameters of hydrological models.
In this Special Issue of Water, we welcome original and innovative research papers focusing on modelling hydrological processes addressing the ungauged catchment problem associated with uncertainties of hydrological models and their parameters. We expect that this Special Issue will contribute to the improvement of prediction skills and to a reduction in the uncertainty in flood forecasting by advancing our knowledge and understanding of hydrological processes.

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.
