Special Issue "Water Flow, Solute and Heat Transfer in Groundwater"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2020).
A printed edition of this Special Issue is available here.
Interests: experimental and theoretical investigation of water flow, solute and heat transfer in porous and fractured media; formulation of mathematical models for multiphase and multicomponent flow and transport in the vadose zone and groundwater system; simulation of saltwater-intrusion problems; simulation of overland flow, solutes transport in runoff and streams; estimating mass-transfer parameters from laboratory- or field-measured water and solute distribution data
This Special Issue on “Water Flow, Solute and Heat Transfer in Groundwater” of Water, focuses on recent advances and future perspectives of groundwater studies, including, but not limited to:
Fundamental investigations addressing multi-phase and multi-component interactions using various experimental techniques, mathematical and numerical modeling of physical mechanisms, management strategies, and experience learned from case studies.
Monitoring and predictions of groundwater flow, solute and heat transfer at different spatial and temporal scales, hydrogeochemistry, well hydraulics, hydraulic fracturing, karst, freshwater-saltwater interactions, groundwater contamination, remediation and protection.
Effect of heterogeneity on dynamic and distribution of contaminants, calibrating flow and transport models, and uncertainty associated with predictions and observations.
Contributions are solicited from hydrogeologists, geophysicists, geochemists, climatologists, microbiologists, ecologists, and others involved with experimental and theoretical aspects linked to flow, solute and heat transport in heterogeneous media, with application to water resources, groundwater contamination and remediation, mining and hydrocarbon geology, geothermal resources, and related areas. By presenting this integrative and multidisciplinary volume we aim at transferring knowledge to hydrologists, hydraulic engineers, water resources planners, managers, and policy makers, who are engaged in the sustainable development of groundwater resources.

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 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 2000 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.
