Special Issue "Fractured Reservoirs"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 28 February 2021.
Interests: The main research fields of Prof. Tivadar M. Tóth cover a wide spectrum within the theme of evaluating fractured hard rock reservoirs. He deals with the reconstruction of petrological, structural, and paleohydrological evolution of different igneous, metamorphic, and carbonate rock bodies as well as simulation of their fracture networks at the reservoir scale. Concerning methodological problems, he concentrates on the potential of using measurable geometric parameters for simulating fracture networks. He has organized numerous research projects on complex evaluation of fractured hydrocarbon and geothermal reservoirs as well as radioactive waste depositories.
Naturally fractured fluid reservoirs are of key importance in numerous fields of applied geology. At present, the largest part of the known hydrocarbon reserves is stored in these systems. Advanced geothermal energy utilization requires fundamental understanding of fractured rock bodies. In addition, safe deposition of hazardous wastes, mining of critical elements through the in situ leaching technique, among many others, use such rock bodies. Nevertheless, to adequately reveal the behavior of fractured reservoirs, petrological, structural geological, geomechanical, hydrodynamic, geophysical, etc., datasets should be evaluated simultaneously.
In this Special Issue, manuscripts involving such a complex approach are invited, whether concerned with case studies or methodological aspects.

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.
