For decades, water deterioration and resource-shortage problems have led to a variety of adverse impacts on socioeconomic development and human life. Challenges of water problems adhering to the principle of sustainable development have been of significant concerns to many researchers and decision makers. These issues are highly complicated, involving a large number of social, economic, environmental, technical, and political factors, coupled with complex spatial variability and a cascading effect. Such complexities force researchers to develop more robust mathematical methods and tools to analyze the relevant information, simulate the related processes, implement mitigation strategies, assess the potential impacts/risks, and generate sound decision alternatives.
This Special Issue on Modeling of Water Systems aims to explore new mathematical techniques to aid decision makers in mitigating water problems. Many questions will be addressed, such as: what are the new techniques in modelling water systems? How do we generate sound water management strategies in consideration of climate change and socio-economic development? Are there appropriate approaches to reflect the extensive uncertainties in the process of modeling water regime and optimizing water management strategies? In addition, case studies associated with a variety of water management issues will be included.

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.
