Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
In the last few years, fluvial dynamics has suffered modification around the world due to recent strong climate changes. In addition, human pressure on fluvial systems and related modifications of the fluvial landscape and its dynamics have led to an increase in river management relevance. In this framework, a new perspective in approaching the study of fluvial environments, merging more than one expertise, is required.
The objective of this Special Issue is to provide the reader with the recent advances in fluvial geomorphology and river managements studies. Research papers related to the response of fluvial landform induced by physical processes, in long- to short-term evolution, are expected. Particularly, articles on relationships among climate change, tectonic activity, and base-level variations in fluvial landscape geomorphological evolution will be welcome.
In the last century, the fluvial system has undergone an increase of human activities that led to a modification of its geomorphological, hydrological, and biological factors., The high loss of life and infrastructures due to high-magnitude events in the fluvial environment makes detailed studies on river restoration and management particularly suitable. Contributions dealing with the fluvial response estimation in river management will be preferred for publication; papers related to fluvial contexts before/during/after a high magnitude event are also welcome.
The Special issue will collect contributiong coming from different fluvial landscapes around the world, thus allowing scientists to compare fluvial landscape behaviors in different geographical contexts.

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.
