Special Issue "Groundwater and Ecosystem under Environmental Changes"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2018)
Groundwater is a critical resource for human life, as well as for the maintenance of ecosystems. Understanding contaminated groundwater with human health is an emerging area of interest and study. Groundwater contributes to the sustainability of ecosystems for harmonizing human beings with nature. On the other hand, environmental changes affect surface and ground water resources more and more. This Special Issue will be published in Geosciences and provide topics regarding groundwater and human health, geohydrology in connection with water and life, geomicrobial characterization of subsurface environments, groundwater resource management, environmental drivers changing hydrologic system and consequences, groundwater quantity and quality issues related to environmental changes, groundwater–surface water interaction, biogeochemistry and ecohydraulics of the riparian and hyporheic zone, groundwater-dependent ecosystems, and so on. The Guest Editors are encouraging papers that contains novel approaches and technologies on the abovementioned topics.
