Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are inviting submissions on the Pollution and Remediation of Groundwater and Soil Environment.

With the development of our society, a growing demand for food causes agriculture to rely heavily upon chemical fertilization, herbicides, and pesticides, which cause serious groundwater contamination. Rising industrial output creates higher contamination of groundwater and soil from cadmium, lead, selenium, and other metals. It is thus becoming more and more important to understand the process of soils and groundwater contaminants and to offer various soils and groundwater remediation technology.

In this Special Issue, we invite submissions exploring cutting-edge research and recent advances in the fields of Pollution and Remediation of Groundwater and the Soil Environment. Both theoretical and experimental studies are welcome, as well as comprehensive reviews and survey papers.
