Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Strategic management of water resources is the key to a sustainable environment and future economic development. This requires knowledge of gravitational groundwater flow systems from the local to regional and basin scales. This Special Issue aims to analyze topics connected to physicochemical processes of groundwater flow systems and their economic resources, geogenic and anthropogenic contamination and hazards of fluids, fluid–rock interactions in deep and shallow flow systems, vulnerability and management of aquifer recharge, water-based heat utilization in the light of climate change, and also legislative frameworks toward sustainable development goals.

Original research articles, theoretical, field, experimental, and numerical studies, and comprehensive review papers in the field of hydrogeology and geochemistry focusing on defining groundwater flow and preventing, controlling, and mitigating negative environmental impacts (quality and quantity) related to groundwater, including those in developing countries, are welcome.

This Special Issue brings together manuscripts from different fields of groundwater studies with the common aspect of understanding regional groundwater flow systems for improved water management. The Special Issue is initiated by the Regional Groundwater Flow Commission of IAH and the ENeRAG H2020 project and is connected to the International Symposium on Geofluids held on July 2021.

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.
