From an historical perspective, water quality modeling and management paradigms have evolved over the past several decades as our understanding of water quality issues and their environmental and human health effects have become clear. At this time, we cannot say that we fully understand all water quality issues and the consequences of water quality problems. Research findings in this area are increasing exponentially with very positive and encouraging results that may guide us through this maze. On the other end of this spectrum, the organic compounds that have been synthesized since the turn of the century now exceed half a million, and some 10,000 new compounds are added to this list each year. As a result, many of these new compounds are now found in the waste and water stream. Given the increasing number of emerging contaminants and their elusive ecological and health effects, it may be safe to say that the goal of completely identifying all issues associated with water quality problems may not be fully achievable. However, as scientists, engineers, and ecology and health professionals we should not give-up and continue to contribute analysis and solutions to the topic. This Special Issue of the Processes journal will gather and present recent research activity within this broad research area with emphasis on water quality modeling. We are looking forward to receiving your contributions to this field.

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. Processes 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 1200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Please note that for papers submitted after 31 December 2019 an APC of 1400 CHF applies. 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.
