Special Issue in Water: Assessing Hydrological Drought in a Climate Change: Methods and Measures
Special Issue in Atmosphere: Assessing Atmospheric Pollution and Its Impacts on the Human Health
Special Issue in Toxics: Advances in Water, Air and Soil Pollution Monitoring, Modeling and Restoration
Society's progress has resulted in increasing the quantity of pollutants emitted in the environment. Water is one of the natural resources most affected by economic activity, with pollutants reaching water bodies without proper treatment. Climate change impacts the water quality as well. Water pollution damages organisms living in the water and many ecosystems. In a world where over 4 billion people suffer from water scarcity, preserving the water resources, assessing the water quality, and remediation are essential.
This Special Issue will feature the latest advances and developments in statistical approaches for evaluation and forecasting of water resources quality. The development of new methodologies and improving the known methods are especially welcome.
The main topics of this Special Issue include but are not limited to:
- Water quality indicators
- Parametric and nonparametric approaches for assessing the groundwater vulnerability
- Spatial distribution and uncertainty in detecting the pollutants dissipation in water
- Assessing pollutant transport in water
- Quantitative and qualitative analysis of spatial and spatio-temporal hydrological data
- Hazards and risks for hydrological series data
- Impact of climate change on water resource quality
- Hydrological drought
- Methods for assessing the interaction between water quality and ecosystems.
Articles presenting new mathematical models that can be validated by statistical methods, for water resources modelling and forecast, are also 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 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 2600 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.
