Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Groundwater is an essential component of the water cycle and is a critical resource for much of the world’s population. On a planet where demand for groundwater and other resources is ever increasing, issues of groundwater quantity and quality are a major focus in many regions of the world.
This Special Issue will provide an overview of topics that focus on either groundwater quantity or quality issues that are relevant on regional or national scales. Examples of groundwater quantity issues include long-term groundwater sustainability, interactions between groundwater and ecosystem function, etc. Water quality issues could include effects on water quality from overexploitation of groundwater, contamination from petroleum, and mineral resource development, etc.
Abstracts for papers are invited on the following issues:
- Governing transboundary groundwater
- Managing groundwater to promote environmental flows
- Managing groundwater during drought
- The current state of arsenic contamination in Bangladesh
- Water quality impacts from hydrofracturing (fracking)
- Managing saltwater intrusion along marine coastlines
- Managing water resources in the High Plains Aquifer (Central US)
- Endocrine disrupting compounds in aquifers
- Pathogens in aquifer systems (confined or unconfined)
