Precious water resources have increasingly been affected by climate change and human activities. Increasing water temperatures in many areas have triggered widespread algae bloom, as well as the related water pollution. Extreme weather, for example more frequent droughts and floods, have brought more challenges to a lot of fragile water ecosystem. In many areas, human activities, including the industrial, agricultural, and domestic sectors, have exacerbated water shortages and contamination, as a result of insufficient water monitoring and regulation. Recently, much research has been devoted to conducting field studies and developing new models to simulate the impact of climate change and anthropogenic activities on water environments, in order to understand the complex dynamics under various scenarios.
This Special Issue welcomes articles dedicated to all aspects of the impact of climate change and human activities on aquatic ecosystems. Papers on field studies may focus on, but are not limited to, eutrophication, biogeochemical cycles, acidification, and emerging pollutants (e.g., microplastic) in the aquatic environment. Articles on modeling may include, but are not limited to, developing new models or applying current models to research water quality or water cycles.Dr. Hong Yang
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.
