Sediment transport is a universal occurrence in various hydrodynamic systems, such as rivers, floods, and coastal flows. It contributes significantly to flow behaviour and can exist in different forms. Even though it is an important phenomenon within natural streams, it is still not well-understood. This Special Issue is dedicated to gathering recent developments in research and technology, and aims to form a useful collection for environmental sediment transport studies. This Special Issue’s scope includes, but is not limited to, the impact of sediment transport to urban watercourses; evolution of morphological and scouring properties within coastal or river systems; contaminant and pollutant transports; and sedimentation and erosion induced by extreme natural flow events, such as in flooded or turbulence conditions. Although this Special Issue targets the state-of-the-art research in analytical and numerical fields, interesting experimental works are also welcome.

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. Fluids 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 1400 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.
