In the face of climate change and population growth in many parts of the world, we need appropriate tools that can assist in dealing with the difficulties introduced by the increasing complexity of water problems. This Special Issue will feature the latest advances and developments in operational hydrologic forecasts and water resources management. The focus is centered on artificial intelligence (AI) techniques in data-mining for operational hydrologic forecasting and evolutionary algorithms (EAs) for reservoir operation. The main themes of this Special Issue include but are not limited to the following:
- AI techniques for multiobjective reservoir operation;
- Machine learning approaches for operational hydrologic forecasting;
- Data assimilation for real-time hydrologic forecasting;
- Uncertainty assessment on hydrological forecasts;
- Advances in flood forecasting and flood risk assessment;
- Drought forecasting and warning;
- Integrated water resources management.
This Special Issue aims at gathering the latest developments in sustainable water resources management as well as operational hydrologic forecasts at different spatiotemporal scales and contexts. The integration of natural sciences with economic and social sciences is also very much appreciated.

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 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 2000 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.
