Special Issue "Denitrification in Agricultural Soils"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (29 February 2020).
Interests: water resources management and protection in the coastal plains, with a focus on water and nitrogen balance at basin scale and salinization processes; characterization and monitoring of dissolved contaminants in aquifers via different assessment methods; implementation of density-dependent groundwater flow models and reactive transport models

Special Issue in Applied Sciences: Denitrification in Agricultural Soils II
The aim of this Special Issue of Applied Sciences is to publish papers that outline the state-of-the-art of the role of denitrification in agricultural soils. This Special Issue will cover topics of both measuring and modeling denitrification rates. Emphasis will be put on scaling up from micro and meso scales to plot and landscape perspectives. Advances in modeling denitrification in upland, lowland, freshwater, and salinized agricultural environments will be addressed. The aim of this Special Issue is to focus on new challenges linked to denitrification in agricultural soils, like, for example, greenhouse gasses emissions; anammox, DNRA and denitrification roles in the terrestrial nitrogen cycle; incomplete denitrification effects on surface and ground waters; best practices to boost field denitrification rates. Priority will be given to papers using a combination of agronomic, ecological, hydrogeological, and geochemical data and to their conjunctive use to monitor, assess and quantify relevant processes in agricultural systems.

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. Applied Sciences 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 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.
