Special Issue Information
Natural and artificial slopes are widely distributed around the world and have a wide variety of types, including mountain slopes, coastal slopes, mine slopes, dikes, etc. Hydrological extremes of unprecedented snowmelt and rainfall are the most common external causes of slope failures, and the subsequent long-runout landslides and debris flow cause severe mortality and economic loss. Assessment of landslide risk relies on the multidisciplinary monitoring of hydrological and geological conditions of potential landslides. The most advanced techniques in remote sensing and in situ monitoring bring more comprehensive information for in-depth analysis of slope failure and deformation mechanism, which can provide basis for early warning of landslide disaster.
This research theme aims to provide an outlet for peer-reviewed publications that combine multidisciplinary techniques in monitoring and modeling to conduct stability analysis and risk assessment of natural and engineering slopes. Topics include but are not limited to the following:
- Hydrogeological monitoring of snowmelt/rainfall-induced landslides
- Impact of soil bioengineering and vegetation on slope stability
- Slope failure and deformation mechanisms under hydrological extremes of unprecedented snowmelt and rainfall
- Monitoring and early warning of tailings dam failure and coastal landslide disaster
- Numerical simulation of multiple-phase debris flow considering fluid-solid coupling
- Landslides disaster prevention and mitigation techniques

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.
