Special Issue "Coastal Aquifers: Seawater/Saltwater Intrusion"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2022) | Viewed by 10001
Interests: groundwater resources evaluation and management; groundwater reservoir; seawater intrusion
Social and economic development have had an impact on the earth’s systems, and external factors such as climate change, the rise of sea level, and the overexploitation of groundwater have destroyed the dynamic balance between the saltwater/seawater and fresh groundwater in coastal areas, further aggravating the degree of seawater intrusion. This has greatly restricted the social and economic development of coastal areas.
This Special Issue is dedicated to “Coastal Aquifers: Seawater/Saltwater Intrusion” and seeks to capture the most up-to-date research and practices. We therefore call for original papers from researchers, practitioners, regulators, and decision-makers presenting their findings on seawater/saltwater intrusion from different perspectives.
The topics of interest but are not limited to: seawater/saltwater intrusion; the development and utilization of freshwater lens; the response of the saltwater–freshwater interface to rising sea levels; induced saltwater upconing in coastal aquifers by pumping; modeling aquifer storage and recovery systems in coastal zones; and modeling new managed aquifer recharge schemes in coastal zones.
Full research articles, reviews, as well as shorter commentaries/communications from practitioners are 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 2200 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.
