Rainfall-runoff is critical in the assessment and planning of water resources. Due to the scarcity of measurements, particularly in developing countries. Modelling, statistical, or regionalization techniques are required to assess the spatial and temporal variability of Rainfall-runoff. This Special Issue welcomes contributions that will assist the scientific community and technicians in fostering knowledge on rainfall-runoff prediction for sustainable water resource management at various spatial scales, from hillslope to catchment scales, while explicitly taking climate and the peculiarities of arid or hyper-humid areas into account. To provide decision makers with reliable quantile predictions, novel approaches are required to predict runoff at any cross section of natural or controlled rivers, from hourly to daily to annual time scales. Integrations with climate models are also possible in order to forecast rainfall and runoff in real time for civil protection purposes, or to have long-term forecasts to support water resource management and dam operations.
Rainfall and runoff must be given special consideration for sustainable water resource management under climate change conditions, with a particular emphasis on countries where rainfall is expected to decrease over the next century. At the same time, researchers must continue to focus on extreme rainfall changes and their impact on rainfall-runoff.
This open-access Special Issue invites high-quality and innovative scientific articles on the use of remote sensing techniques and data from any platform (ground sensing, satellite, aircraft, drones, etc.) to study critical water-related issues. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, those listed below:
- Rainfall-runoff modeling;
- Water resources management;
- Deep learning application in water resources;
- Big data analytics in flood forecasting;
- Machine learning approaches for rainfall-runoff modelling;
- Impact of climate change on urban flood;
- Data-driven approaches for flood mapping and modeling;
- Novel methods for improving flood research.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 semimonthly 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 2600 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.
