Special Issue "C, Nutrients and Trace Elements in Northern Lake Ecosystems: The Impact of Anthropogenic Load and Climate Change"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 December 2022) | Viewed by 3280
Current changes in the climate and increased anthropogenic impact on the environment make the study of lake ecosystems increasingly important. Distribution, accumulation and migration of chemical elements in aquatic ecosystems are closely related to the processes in the biotic and abiotic components of these ecosystems. Therefore, a detailed and comprehensive assessment of the biogeochemical cycles in the lake ecosystems, and their response to current environmental changes and anthropogenic load, as well as interpretation of the role of components of lake ecosystems as markers of these processes, are an important scientific goal.
This Special Issue welcomes articles dedicated to all aspects of the behavior of carbon, nutrients, trace elements and pollutants in northern lake ecosystems, including both anthropogenically altered and pristine regions. Of special interest are papers dealing with the influence of climate change and human activities on greenhouse gas emission, nutrients and trace element concentrations in the conjugate components (bottom sediments–lake water and pore water–biota) of boreal and high latitude lake ecosystems, as well as the factors that affect this content.
Papers on field, experimental, and modeling studies related to greenhouse gas emission, nutrients, trace elements and pollutant concentrations may focus on climate warming, pollution, and the recovery of lake ecosystems.

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.
