Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The soil and water assessment tool (SWAT) model is an eco-hydrological modeling simulation tool that has been applied in various hydrologic and environmental conditions across the globe. The SWAT model is a physically based, semi-distributed, and continuous-time hydrological model. The model was developed to assess and predict the long-term multiscale impacts of land use/cover changes, land management practices, climate variability and change on watershed hydrology, soil dynamics, and fate and transport of non-point source pollutants  at the watershed or river basin-scales. Major improvements have been incorporated into the current SWAT+ codes, including more detailed spatial representation, routing of flow and pollutants between HRUs and/or landscape units, and greatly simplified input file structure.

This Special Issue aims to attract high-quality research and review papers related to new and innovative approaches in the development and application of SWAT and SWAT+ models. Potential topics include (but are not limited to) the following: new enhancements and tools for SWAT+; SWAT+ linkages with other models; large-scale applications; groundwater and surface water interactions; carbon and nitrogen cycles; GHG emissions, fate, and transport of pollutants; wetland, potholes, and tile drains; improved accounting of LAI depiction and plant growth; urban landscapes; and others.

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 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 2000 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.
