Special Issue "Recent Advances in Riverflow Research"
A special issue of Water (ISSN 2073-4441).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 March 2016).
Rivers carry a large amount of freshwater from their source to the sea/lake, while simultaneously shaping our land. They provide water, food, means of transportation, and renewable energy, but also disaster, destruction, and loss of life (in the form of floods). Detailed knowledge of fluvial and hydrodynamic processes in rivers and streams is important for river basin management and ecosystem services and remains a challenging task for hydraulic and environmental engineers and scientists from many different disciplines, including hydrology, ecology, geography, etc. Over a century of research has gone into understanding riverflows. However, despite our best efforts, sophisticated experimental tools, and advanced numerical models executed on ever-growing computational resources, many questions have still yet to be answered. Moreover, continuous population growth and climate change will bring many new questions.
This Special Issue aims at assembling the latest endeavors of riverflow research and novel findings that address current knowledge gaps. We encourage submissions from experimentalists and numerical modelers alike, as well as articles reporting the results of recent field campaigns covering all aspects of riverflow research, such as fundamental studies on the fluid mechanics in rivers and streams, research on sediment transport and water quality processes, as well as applied hydraulic engineering work.

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. Water 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 1600 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.
