Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Groundwater, which is frequently silent and out of sight, is essential to the global support of ecosystems and communities. Understanding its critical importance is essential as we examine its hydrochemical properties, quality, and health dangers. This hidden resource, which supports billions of people, is essential to domestic needs, industry, and agriculture underneath the surface of the Earth.

The study of groundwater’s hydrochemical composition extends beyond academic curiosity; it is a clarion call for action. The quality of this hidden treasure directly impacts human health and the environment, making it a focal point for research and targeted interventions. Contaminants can infiltrate this vital resource, posing health risks to those reliant on it for daily sustenance. A comprehensive assessment of groundwater quality is not only a scientific duty but a moral requirement.

Facing global challenges like climate change and population growth, the resilience of groundwater reservoirs is critical. Our Special Issue provides a platform for researchers to contribute their expertise in unraveling hydrochemistry intricacies and informing evidence-based policies and practices.

We encourage submissions exploring innovative groundwater assessment approaches, including advanced remote sensing tools. Technology, especially remote sensing, offers a comprehensive understanding of groundwater dynamics, vital for sustainable management.

As custodians of scientific inquiry, we invite you to submit to this Special Issue. Your contributions—through traditional hydrochemical analyses or cutting-edge remote sensing techniques—will enrich our understanding and pave the way for safeguarding this vital resource.

Prof. Dr. Wenbin Shen
Guest Editor

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Water 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 2600 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.
