Hydrological modeling is an essential part of water resources management, planning, and design of water structures. Despite of its importance, it is a challenging issue, especially in non-homogeneous catchments (e.g., in terms of geology, karst features or any other watershed characteristic) with a complex hydrological behavior and response. Various methods of different complexity can be used for hydrological modeling, from relatively simple empirical and lumped models to physically-based conceptual and distributed models as well as data-driven models. However, there should always be a balance between model complexity and data availability.
This Special Issue calls for research manuscripts focusing on hydrological modeling or other techniques addressing hydrological response of runoff to a given precipitation in non-homogeneous catchments, comparison of the efficiency of different model structures, data resolutions, scales, etc., with the aim of reducing the uncertainty of the results (low and/or high flows) and improving water resources management in non-homogeneous catchments. Contributions may address any type of non-homogeniety of the catchments.

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.
