For a sustainable environment and food production, under the increasing pressures of a growing population and changing climate, we need efficient ways to manage nutrients and other contaminants and mitigate their losses to water in agricultural landscapes. To meet this challenge, we need a comprehensive understanding of how hydrological and chemical controls influence the contaminants along the transfer continuum, both over time and space, and in different catchment typologies, while also considering the role of climatic drivers and catchment residence time. This Special Issue welcomes contributions from observational and modelling studies that advance this knowledge and help reshape the thinking of future river catchment management.

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 monthly 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 1800 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.
