Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Increased industrialization and population growth have substantially enhanced the demand for sustainable water supplies. A large number of inland and coastal waters, particularly those located in the vicinity of urban areas, suffer from contamination due to anthropogenic activities. Therefore, the development of technologies for more rigorous water quality monitoring and application methodologies for accurate modeling of the fate and transport of contaminants in aquatic environments are of paramount importance.
This Special Issue aims to present a collection of experimental, computational, and monitoring studies pertaining to the physical, chemical, and biological processes influencing the fate and transport of anthropogenic and naturally occurring contaminants in aquatic environments. Particular emphasis is placed on studies investing the bioaccumulation, degradation, partitioning, and transformation of both legacy and emerging contaminants as well as fieldwork and modeling studies characterizing the mixing and transport processes in water bodies and their interactions with atmosphere and sediments. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Hydrodynamic and water quality modeling;
- Occurrence of eutrophication and harmful algal blooms in marine and freshwater systems;
- Bioaccumulation of contaminants in the aquatic food chain;
- Novel sensors, detection methods, and monitoring approaches;
- Surface and groundwater hydrogeology/hydraulics;
- Pathogen tracking and risk assessment;
- Regulatory requirements and compliance;
- Degradation, transformation, and accumulation of legacy and emerging contaminants in aquatic systems;
- Environmental restoration;
- Application machine learning and soft computing methods in water quality monitoring and assessment.

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 2600 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.
