Dear Colleagues,

We would like to bring to your attention a call for papers for the Special Issue "Hydrological Modeling and Evaluation for Flood Risk Management" in Applied Sciences (IF=2.474; CiteScore=2.4).

Floods can be considered to be one of the most devastating natural hazards, with severe socioeconomic and environmental impacts on the affected areas. The dynamics of flooding can be very complex, particularly when a flood results from a particular combination of multiple process drivers such as coastal and fluvial mechanisms. Understanding flood mechanisms and predicting extents of inundation and potential damage are important issues in flood risk management.

This Special Issue welcomes multidisciplinary studies that aim to showcase innovation in techniques for improved prediction of the dynamics and extent of flooding in a reliable and effective manner. In this context, researchers of various disciplines, including coastal and hydraulic engineering, hydrology, meteorology, remote sensing, geography, and geotechnics, are invited to explore advances in analysis of model prediction skill (e.g., uncertainty quantification, sensitivity analysis, data assimilation, machine learning, multi-scale modeling) and/or integration of multiple flood drivers into hydrological modeling.

Examples of topics covered by this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Hydrological/hydrodynamic modelling
  • Coastal and/or fluvial flood mechanisms
  • Compounds events
  • Extreme event analysis and flood probability
  • Model uncertainty, data assimilation, machine learning
  • Remote sensing
  • Multi-scale and high-resolution modelling
  • Flood risk management

The submission deadline is 31 October 2021All articles published in Applied Sciences (ISSN 2076-3417) are published in full open access. We may consider printing it into a E-book and real book (with ISBN number). Please visit our special issue website for the details.

Some discounted publication vouchers could be available.

Please feel free to contact us directly at indiana...@nuigalway.ie if you are interested in submitting a manuscript. 

Thanks very much for your consideration.

Kind regards,
