Special Issue "Interactions of the Terrestrial Hydrologic, Energy, and Biogeochemical Cycles"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2018).
Interests: interactions of the terrestrial hydrologic and energy cycles; watershed hydrodynamics; scientific computing in HPC environments; surface water–groundwater interactions; subsurface flow and transport (mass, energy); thermodynamics of soil moisture; experimental and theoretical aquifer hydraulics
The terrestrial hydrologic, energy, and biogeochemical (HEB) cycles are intrinsically coupled via non-linear processes acting across a number of space and time scales. In the past, considerable progress has been made in characterizing the different cycles utilizing in situ and remotely sensed observations and models. Recently, strong focus has been placed on integrating the HEB cycles in a systems theoretical and experimental approach accounting for the non-linear, two-way feebacks across different terrestrial compratments from groundwater across the land surface into the atomsphere including also human activities. This Special Issue solicits contributions from observational and modeling studies, which advance our understanding of the coupled HEB cycles and improve our models and predictions including uncertainty estimates. Special focus is placed on novel data analytics and assimilation technologies to identify, e.g., long and short range correlations of non-linear processes and merge efficiently models with observations.Prof. Stefan Kollet

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 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 2000 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.
