Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Wetlands can be natural, low-lying, regularly inundated ecotones that emerge at the fringe of aquatic and upland terrestrial ecosystems, or engineered (constructed wetlands), which are widely used for water quality treatment, shallow aquifer recharge, flood control, etc. Even some of the low impact development (LID) practices in urban areas, such as rain gardens, swales, and green roofs, can be considered types of wetlands. Wetlands are recognized for the variety of ecosystem services they provide, such as water quality purification, carbon sequestration, habitat provision, and biodiversity maintenance.

This proposed Special Issue solicits research papers on wetland function modeling and monitoring to be published in Water. The scope of the Special Issue is on recent advances in basic and applied research leading to improved description of hydrology, hydrodynamics, water quality, and primary productivity in models of natural, restored, and constructed treatment wetlands, including some of the LID practices in urban areas that mimic the ecological function of wetlands. This includes research papers on improved physical, biochemical, and biomass processes of existing models and novel case-study model applications. Papers on carbon sequestration and greenhouse gas emissions (CO2, CH4, and N2O) in inland freshwater and coastal saltwater wetlands are highly encouraged. Laboratory and field-scale studies aiming to elucidate the understanding of complex interactions among physical and biogeochemical processes, leading to the development of empirical relationships which promise improved wetland simulation models, are also encouraged. Research papers on modeling for the improved design of constructed and treatment wetlands are welcomed. Papers on model and method development or applications for scaling up wetland function and processes to the catchment scale using statistical and watershed models are also highly encouraged.

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 2200 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.
