We are pleased to announce the launch of a Special Issue which will focus on the topic of the transforming process and flux of nutrients and trace metals at the sediment-water interface. Manuscripts for this issue are expected to address one or more of the following themes:
The editors welcome manuscripts on innovative analytical methods pertaining to nutrients or metals of environmental interest. Manuscripts that simply repeat the use of older methods with a different substrate will not be considered; only the presentation of innovative aspects are of interest.
2) Environmental distribution or pollution
Environmental distribution or pollution studies that report the levels of nutrients or metals in aquatic systems, e.g., lakes, rivers, wetlands, reservoirs, are of interest. Manuscripts reporting results of/that show partition, transformation, diffusion, or bioaccumulation are welcomed.
3) Risk assessment
This Special Issue also welcomes the submission of papers that have the objective of quantifying chemical risk to humans or aquatic systems. Manuscripts in this section should provide linkages between the variations in chemical concentrations in environmental media (water, sediment, biota) and hazard/risk assessment.
4) Pollution remediation or environmental management
Authors could also submit papers with the aim of providing solutions for pollution remediation or environmental management, according to your research on the biogeochemical process of nutrients and metals in aquatic systems.

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.
