Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

A wide variety of hydraulic and water quality models has been developed and applied to streams, rivers, lakes, reservoirs, and coastal water bodies in support of ecosystem management and restoration, with integrated hydraulic and water quality models routinely used today to support regulatory, management, and restoration decision making. Since these models are used to solve a variety of ecosystem problems, they vary considerably in their capability and complexity, from being single-parameter to multi-parameters, from a steady-state model to a dynamic model, from a decoupled hydraulic and water quality model to the fully coupling model, and from a zero-dimensional model to a multi-dimensional model. For this Special Issue, we encourage the submission of manuscripts especially focusing on the application of hydraulic and water quality models to water bodies, with the aim of solving unique ecosystem problems in support of overall ecosystem management and restoration.

Prof. Dr. Zhonglong Zhang
Guest Editor
