Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Environmental monitoring and analysis for hydrology is an active area of research and practice, as the quality and availability of water resources continue to be a pressing concern for communities around the world. The current status of research in this field reflects the growing recognition of the importance of comprehensive and integrated approaches to environmental monitoring and analysis, especially for water management and marine hydrological environment.

One of the current challenges in environmental monitoring and analysis for hydrology is the need to develop new and more effective technologies and methods for data collection and analysis. This includes the development of low-cost sensors and other instruments that can be deployed in remote or inaccessible locations, as well as the integration of new technologies like artificial intelligence and machine learning into data analysis. Another challenge is the need to improve our understanding of the complex interactions between water resources and other environmental systems, including the impacts of climate change, land use change, and pollution on aquatic ecosystems. This requires the development of more sophisticated models and analytical tools, as well as increased collaboration between experts in different fields.

This special issue invites the academic community and relevant industrial partners to submit high-quality papers to address these challenges and/or explore new solutions. Relevant topics include, but are not limited to, the following areas:

  • Innovative technologies and methods for environmental monitoring and data collection for hydrology
  • Integration of environmental data from multiple sources, including remote sensing imagery and in-situ monitoring
  • Development and application of environmental models for hydrological analysis and prediction
  • Impacts of climate change, land use change, and pollution on water resources, aquatic ecosystems and marine ecology
  • Environmental impact of ocean engineering such as offshore wind power
  • Data quality control of marine environmental monitoring
  • Data-driven methods for hydrodynamic environment forecasting and simulation
  • Optical and laser technologies for extreme environmental monitoring and analysis, such as deep sea and Polar Marine
  • Case studies and best practices in environmental monitoring and analysis for hydrology
  • Future directions for research and technology development in this field

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. Applied Sciences 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 2300 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.
