Special Issue "Processes Influencing Water Quality in Surface Catchments in the Context of the Local and Global Distribution of Pollutants"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2020.
Interests: environmental analytics; water quality; environmental fate of pollutants; distribution of contaminants; interactions between chemical compounds and the environment (biotic and abiotic)
Environmental pollution is a global problem, particularly reflected in the hydrology of catchments, by changing the quality of the water circulating in them. Furthermore, some pollutants can be used as markers of the physical and chemical processes occurring in surface waters. Factors influencing the state of the environment of catchments include the geographic location and local physical-geographical conditions, as well as the occurrence of pollution sources within the catchment and outside of it. Research on the issue of pollutant transport requires an interdisciplinary approach and consideration of the multi-aspect character of the observed processes. Therefore, I invite authors to contribute articles on the important processes for changing water quality in surface catchments located across the globe, and on the interactions between these processes.Prof. Dr. Żaneta Polkowska
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 monthly 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 1800 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.
