Special Issue in Water: Fluvial Hydraulics in the Presence of Vegetation in Channels
In winter, river ice forms when the water temperature declines to freezing. The formation of ice cover in rivers is an important phenomenon that affects fluvial hydraulics compared to that under open flow conditions. As a consequence, the winter operation of ice-covered rivers has to be changed. In the past 30 years, with the growing interest in fluvial hydraulics under ice-covered flow conditions, some progress has been made. Some cutting-edge research on all aspects of fluvial hydraulics under ice-covered flow conditions has been published. However, a more comprehensive understanding of the impact of ice cover on fluvial hydraulics is required. This Special Issue calls for renewed contributions that improve knowledge of this theme, including but not limited to the impacts of ice cover/jam on sediment transport and local scour/deformation of the riverbed. Research works regarding the effects of river ice on the operation of hydropower plants and channel navigation are welcome. Contributions regarding the impacts of ice cover on environmental and aquatic systems will be also included.

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.
