Special Issue in Sensors: Water Quality Sensors
In the era of big data and the Internet of things, wireless sensor networks are essential for generating data. The use of wireless sensor networks (WSN) for environmental monitoring can provide an excellent tool to analyze the changes and impacts caused by human activity. Even the use of WSN for water and environmental monitoring is not a new idea; we can find several gaps in the current proposals.
The current high-cost of sensors and nodes, the elevate power consumption, and the requirement of maintenance are some of the outstanding issues. Furthermore, the coexistence of several communication technologies with different characteristics (bandwidth, coverage, and power consumption) is another topic that must be addressed when designing a WSN.
This Special Issue will collect the latest advances in WSN for water and environment monitoring, including, but not limited to, design and calibration of new sensors, development of WSN for innovative applications, or performance of deployed WSN for long term monitoring.

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. Sensors 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 2000 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.
