Debris flow is one of the most catastrophic geological events around the word. Strong earthquakes and heavy rainfall events are the most significant contributors for the frequent occurrence of large debris flow. Actually, debris flow has been a major natural threat for the security of people, infrastructure, lifelines, and economic activities in many countries. Understanding the debris flow disaster and put forward effective control measures is a societal priority. However, there are significant technical challenges associated with the mechanism and prevention of debris flow disaster.
This Special Issue will cover the recent advances and future developments concerning the debris flow in the initiation mechanism of debris flow, unsteady flow performance, channel erosion mechanism, debris flow impact estimation, regional risk assessment, optimization design method of debris flow mitigation measures, etc. In additional to these main topics, we further encourage the submission of original research and synthetic reviews through filed investigations, novel data acquisition techniques, laboratory and model experiment research, new numerical approaches, and the application of artificial intelligence approaches.

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.
