Special Issue "Water Resources and Hydro-Ecology"
A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601). This special issue belongs to the section "Environmental Science and Engineering".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2020).
Hydro-ecology provides an important tool for better assessing and understanding the interactions among animals and plants and their surrounding water systems in terms of surface water and groundwater. For example, expanding crop-raising activities to meet the growing need for food may cause overutilization of surface water and severe groundwater pollution. Many countries are facing significant challenges such as securing potable water supply, managing wild swings of droughts and floods, and maintaining sustainable hydro-ecological environment for generations to come. This Special Issue aims to address these concerns from a wide array of angles. We welcome theoretical and practical contributions to the general theme of water resources and hydro-ecology. Specific topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Agricultural Water Management
- Health Impacts of Extreme Events
- Surface Water and Groundwater Pollution Control
- Water-Energy-Food Nexus Approaches
