Special Issue in Sustainability: Geo-computation and Spatial Big Data Application for Sustainable Management of Hydrometeorological Hazards: Methodological Innovations, Mitigation Strategies; Case Studies and Best Practices
This Special Issue invites research articles on the all aspect of on-site wastewater treatment, and the results of laboratory, field- trial and modelling studies are all welcome. Such studies could focus on the soil treatment aspects of on-site wastewater systems in terms of contaminant transport and attenuation of different pollutants through the vadose zone and into groundwater; it could focus on different biogeochemical cycles in the soil treatment area (nitrogen, carbon, etc.) with links to direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions; equally, it could focus on soil microbial diversity aspects of such soil treatment systems. The research articles could focus on the impact of such on-site systems at larger catchment/watershed scales in terms of their potential pollution of rivers (and groundwater). The research could also focus on novel treatment solutions for sites with different challenges (for example, cold climates, low permeability soils, high-density settlements etc.). Aspects such as water-related energy requirements (and opportunities for energy recovery), evaluation of different water management strategies to reduce carbon emissions (e.g., water conservation, efficiency, reuse, passive treatment etc.) are also encouraged; for example, the use of life cycle analysis to investigate and compare different treatment system design approaches.

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.
