Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
This Special Issue invites papers that explore new and innovative applications of hydrometeorological forecasting using the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model. Hydrometeorological forecasting is well rooted in the seminal studies of Ferraris et al. (2002), Siccardi et al. (2005), as well as in the classical textbooks of Sene (2009) and Collier (2016).
Since the onset of hydrometerology science, the WRF model has been an essential modeling component of the complex forecasting chain for short-range prediction of severe hydrometeorological phenomena. There has also been a growing interest in novel areas such as sub-easonal and seasonal forecast (WRF-Hydro), renewable energy prediction (WRF-Solar), food and agriculture (WRF-Crop), and nowcasting application (WRF-DA). Therefore, this Special Issue invites authors to submit research that applies the WRF modeling suite at high spatio-emporal resolution to solve current and emerging problems in hydrometeorology science at large and potentially pave the way to facing new forecasting challenges in order to make our society more sustainable and resilient, also in light of ongoing climate change impacts. Research results addressing more traditional (HPC) computing paradigms, as well as emerging ones (cloud computing and GPUs) in support of WRF hydrometeorology modeling are also welcome.

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.
