Water, one of the most important natural resources, supports people’s daily life, maintains the ecosystems that people rely on, provides transportation, recreation, ecotourism, and much more. Pressures on water resources and disasters are rising primarily due to unequal distribution, urbanization, extreme and frequent drought and flooding, pollution, deforestation, and also partly due to poor knowledge about the distribution of water recourses and poor management of water resources and usage. Remote sensing provides critical data sources for mapping water resources and changes, while GIS provides the best tool for water resource and flood risk management, presentation, visualization and publication education. This Special Issue calls for the best practices, cutting-edge research and applications of remote sensing and GIS use for water resources mapping, management, visualization, public education and outreaches. The submission of cutting edge research on remote sensing water quality, pollution, drought, flooding and other research that is related to water resource and flood risk management, is also encouraged for this Special Issue.

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 1800 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.
