Special Issue Information
Taking into account the high importance of fresh water to the world's population and for the preservation of its species diversity, the high relevance of water resources studies under the influence of increasing anthropogenic loads is obvious. The transformation of watersheds, airborne streams, industrial and domestic wastewaters leading to water pollution, changes in geochemical cycles in the "catchment–reservoir" system, acidification, the eutrophication of lakes and rivers, and the diffusion of toxic substances in water reduce the quality of water and the biodiversity of aquatic systems. Climate warming also leads to changes in hydrological cycles and the cycle of elements and substances. The aim of this Special Issue is to combine the results of studies on the anthropogenic impact on water resources and water quality, forecasts of the consequences of increasing anthropogenic loads in conditions of climate warming, and assessments of reducing the negative consequences of water pollution and water restoration.
The scope of the Special Issue includes:
- Chemistry and biology of water under point-source and diffuse water pollution, airborne pollution of catchments, transport processes, and toxic contaminants (metals and pops), as well as aquatic ecosystem health assessments.
- Nutrient loads and eutrophication, acid loads and acidification, critical values and recovery from a long-term perspective.
- Climate warming impacts on water resources: hydrology, quality, and risk assessment.
- Mathematical modeling, systems analysis, and beneficial use of big data related to the anthropogenic water cycle and quality.

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.
