Atmospheric rivers (ARs) have experienced great notoriety in the last decade, attracting a great deal of attention from the scientific and operational communities. ARs play a prominent role in the hydrological cycle, as well as in the redistribution of energy on a planetary scale. Recently, it has been shown that most ARs have a positive impact, and they account for a substantial part of the moderate precipitation in different regions of the planet, especially along the west coast of the continents and adjacent mountain ranges. A few ARs, however, may result in extreme precipitation events when the enormous amount of moisture that they transport from their sources is subject to intense orographic or forced uplift. These kinds of phenomena are characterized by their high social and economic impact.
This Special Issue welcomes all papers related to precipitation formation in AR events and their attending impacts. Case studies, climatologies, observations, and modeling studies are invited to participate.

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 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 2200 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.
