Special Issue in Water: Ecogeochemical Processes of Trace Elements in Soil and Water for Planet Security
There has long been concern about the issue of soil, sediment, and water pollution by various contaminants worldwide. The contaminants pose potential threats to the environment and can damage human health through various exposed pathways, such as direct ingestion, dermal contact, diet through the food chain, inhalation, and oral intake. However, the contamination of soil and sediment related to water quality need a comprehensive approach to provide a reference for policy decisions in the remediation processes. Therefore, it is very important to understand the ecological and health risk for sustaining natural resources and ecosystems.
The Special Issue aims to gather high-quality papers emphasizing different aspects and findings of risk assessment for ecological and human health through soil, sediment, and water contamination.
Submitted contributions will go through a peer review process performed by independent reviewers. Original case studies and review papers are invited for publication in this Special Issue.
