Special Issue "Advanced Research in Groundwater Geochemistry"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 28 February 2022.
Interests: isotopic evolution of meltwater; moisture transport with water vapor isotopes; glaciology; groundwater geochemistry
Interests: mechanisms and pathways of geochemical water–rock interactions under diverse environmental conditions and engineered systems—redox kinetics, mineral dissolution/ precipitation, solid-phase transformation etc.
The growing interest in both water and chemical cycles leads to the creation of new hydrogeochemical approaches, such as new chemical analysis methods, laboratory experiments, and models. From precipitation to groundwater, their isotopic and chemical compositions can reveal diverse physical and chemical processes (the flow path of groundwater, chemical weathering, contaminant transport, etc.). Recently, hydrogeochemical processes under diverse environmental conditions from extremely cold to hot and from humid to dry conditions have obtained the highest attention with respect to climate change.
In this Special Issue dedicated to “Advanced Research in Groundwater Geochemistry”, it is our pleasure to invite the submission of original papers dealing with:
- Water–rock interactions for solute transport;
- Chemical cycles with non-traditional stable isotopes;
- Isotope transport models;
- Stable oxygen isotopes of sulfate, nitrate, and phosphate;
- Combined studies of model, column (batch) experiments, and in situ for the fate of solute concentration.
We expect the advanced studies of groundwater geochemistry to help us increase our understanding of these physical and chemical processes with a new perspective.

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.
