Interests: earth observation; regional/global water cycle; land hydrology; surface water storage; terrestrial water storage
In recent years, remote sensing has become increasingly important in Earth system science, and, especially, for the monitoring of the terrestrial water cycle with the launch of a great numbers of satellites, covering various applications (rainfall, soil moisture, flood extent, surface water level, terrestrial water storage, snow and ice, floods). This has paved the way for an explosion in the use of remote sensing data, especially through the use of Geographic Information System (GIS). This Special Issue aims to present reviews and recent advances of general interest in the use of remote sensing and GIS for hydrology. Manuscripts can be related to any use of remote sensing and/or GIS for any hydrological application. They can be focused on the monitoring of water reservoir (e.g., surface storage, soil moisture, soil roughness, groundwater, snow and ice, etc.) or flux (e.g., rainfall, evapotranspiration, discharge, etc.) at any scale, as well as on the management of water resources. Observations taking into account the spatial and temporal variability are needed to calibrate the models and control their forecasts. Remote sensing now provides access to useful factors in land surface monitoring. The assimilation of satellite measurements and products in the function models of hydrological processes and water management procedures allows an improvement in the understanding of the continental water cycle.

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 monthly 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 1600 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.
