Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Rivers link terrestrial and marine ecosystems, not only transporting numerous substances downstream, but also shaping lanscapes and fostering aquatic ecosystems through the interactions of biogeochemical processes with numerous agents. In this regard, rainstorms are regarded as an episodic, strong trigger that accelerates riverine transport and causes sequestrial effects. Recently, global warming has accelerated water cycling via thermodynamics and thus the frequency and intensity of extreme events have been enhanced. The intensified extreme events inevitably stimulate the response of river systems through sediment and nutrient transport, as well as the associated biogeochemical processes. Those strong impacts on river systems should be comprehensively explored. This issue aims to improve the understanding of rainstorm effects in river systems. Inter- and cross-discipline studies on different watershed scales, linking ecosystem services and on watershed management are particularly welcome.

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 1500 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.
