Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

WETPOL is an international symposium bringing together wetland scientists, engineers, and practitioners working on wetland ecosystem services, including water quality improvement, climate regulation, and flood control. The aims of WETPOL 2021 are to improve our understanding of the role of wetlands in processing nutrients and contaminants, and to discuss and demonstrate how restored and constructed wetlands can contribute to ensure sustainable water management and resource recovery while mitigating the impacts of global climate change in the future. The Special Issue will invite articles addressing nutrient and organic carbon cycling and retention in artificial and natural wetlands via modeling approaches, field studies, and experiments. It will highlight the strategic role of wetlands in nutrient mitigation and sediment retention within river systems under current and future climate conditions. The Special Issue will, thus, contribute to our knowledge about the potential and limitations of nature-based solutions in water quality improvements in stream and river systems.

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.
