Special Issue "Water Quality Changes of Lakes and Rivers"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 June 2022) | Viewed by 13063
The quality of waters (lakes and rivers) is one of the most important hydrobiological problems. Nowadays, attention is increasingly being paid to the quality of our waters and the various possibilities of their use. Different sources of water pollution (municipal and industrial wastewater inflows, agricultural and urban runoffs) and new pollutants are extremely important: antibiotics, hormones, painkillers and drugs. Their identification and effective removal are important for the functioning of water ecosystems and human health. There is growing interest among scientists in issues concerning not only the identification of sources of pollution and stopping the process of eutrophication of waters of both lakes and rivers, but also the possibility of improving their quality. Protective treatments introduced in catchment areas and restoration methods in water bodies are an area which is developing very fast. As research has shown, a very important problem related to water eutrophication is not only the external load of biogenic compounds from the direct and indirect catchment area, but also internal loading from bottom sediments. It is also important how the quality of river waters flowing through heavily polluted reservoirs changes. We encourage all the researchers working in this field to send us their manuscripts with the latest advances in this area.
