The collection and reuse of rainwater around the world is seen as a solution to the supply problems suffered by increasingly populated large cities. Harnessing rainwater makes water available and prevents it from running off contaminated surfaces, thus preventing the pollution of natural watercourses and also of underground reserves. This is why in several countries of the world, measures are being taken to capture and reuse rainwater resources. In a world under climate change, unstable weather produces less rainfall events, but they are more intense and unpredictable.
Hence the importance of the study of rainfall measurements has evolved greatly, as, in addition to the classic pluviometers and rain gauges, new study techniques are being used, such as the use of rainfall simulators, the application of high-speed photography, combined 3D disdrometers, and the use of highly advanced radar or weather types.
Furthermore, it is very important the study of strategies developed for saving rainwater; for the rapid detection of acid rain; and for the control of possible effects of rainfall events, like wave interference, the cleaning of aerosols, and effects on human health, among others.
We dedicate this collection of papers to researchers specialized in the study of rainfall measurements and its applications. It is also dedicated to those working on the collection and reuse of rainwater, and control of the adverse effects of rain influenced by climate change.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2600 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.
