Non-point source (NPS) pollution involves a variety of pollutants, such as nutrients, pesticides, heavy metals, bacteria/pathogens, and sediments from various diffuse sources. With surface runoff, these pollutants eventually transport into rivers, lakes, wetlands, and aquifers, resulting in contamination of both surface and subsurface systems. Improved understanding of their sources and pathways throughout surface and subsurface environments, effective monitoring and modeling methodologies, and strategic environmental assessment are critical to sustainable ecosystems and society.
This Special Issue of IJERPH focuses on all aspects related to NPS pollution, monitoring, modeling, and assessment. The topics include, but are not limited to: occurrence and distribution of NPS pollutants in surface water and groundwater, modeling of the fate and transport of NPS pollutants in surface and subsurface environments, watershed water quality modeling (e.g., SWAT modeling), NPS water quality management and environmental assessment (e.g., development of TMDLs and BMPs). It is open to both theoretical and applied studies. NPS pollution is a global issue. Thus, the NPS-related studies from different countries and regions are particularly encouraged.Dr. Xuefeng Chu
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. International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health 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.
