Special Issue in Water: Assessing Water Quality Status of Rivers, Estuaries and Coastal Waters
Many river basins around the world are facing frequent severe flood events due to continuous anthropogenic pressure, particularly from the strong climatic changes experienced in the last several decades, prompting further research into fluvial dynamics and river water quality and quantity. Many different forms of deterioration are affecting river dynamics and water quality, consequentially affecting coastlines through the river estuaries and deltas. Although this topic has been extensively studied for decades, recent advances in novel observational methods and technologies, together with improved modeling concepts, require re-visitation on the common topics of management and water quality.
The objective of this Special Issue is to provide the reader with recent advances in understanding complex phenomena in natural watercourses, especially in terms of the characterization, control, management, and environmental monitoring of flooding and pollution in river basins. Increased demand for and usage of water resources, along with the deterioration of natural conditions, quantitatively and qualitatively affect water resources negatively and continue to place pressure on them.
This Special Issue will collect contributions from different river management and water quality studies around the world, allowing scientists to compare different approaches in understanding natural watercourses and management practices.

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.
