Monitoring Inland Water Quality and Ecological Status
Inland rivers, lakes and wetlands are valuable freshwater resources that carry many functions, for example, as sources of drinking water, recreation, fisheries, flood control, etc. Inland waters are also complex ecosystems. Inland water quality and ecological conditions affect each other and are influenced by a range of factors. Under the influence of continuous land use, climate change and human activities, inland water quality and ecological status are changing globally, and the factors that drive these changes among multiple interacting stressors are often uncertain. Therefore, the rapid, accurate and long-term monitoring of inland water quality and ecosystem changes is necessary for understanding the patterns, trends and drivers of water quality, and helps to develop and utilize inland water resources rationally, as well as maintain inland ecosystems.
In this Topic, we aim to collect new research advances in the field of monitoring and evaluating inland water quality and ecological status. We welcome all studies considering the monitoring of inland water quality and ecological status, including but not limited to:
- Aquatic vegetation;
- Water area;
- Water quality;
- Monitoring methods;
- Water bloom;
- Spatial and temporal variation.
Contributions on the progress of monitoring and evaluation techniques, studies on the status and trends of water quality, and driver analyses of changes in the water quality and ecological status of inland waters are all welcome. Monitoring techniques are not limited to remote sensing; monitoring methods supported by measurement data are also welcome. Individual, regional and global studies of inland waters are all desired.
