    Special Issue on Groundwater Research


    Groundwater is mainly formed by the direct infiltration of atmospheric precipitation and the infiltration of surface water to the ground. It present beneath Earth's surface in soil pore spaces and in the fractures of rock formations. Groundwater is a key component of the hydrologic system. Groundwater is not only a vital water resource for human consumption but there are also intense exchange processes and interconnections with surface waters, terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. It is of great significance to fully understand the law of groundwater formation and regional water cycle evolution, to deeply reveal the influence mechanism of groundwater development on geological environment, and to rationally utilize groundwater resources for the sustainable development of ecological environment.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original researches and review articles on exploring groundwater research. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Groundwater exploitation and utilization
    • Groundwater pollution, treatment and remediation
    • Groundwater monitoring and protection
    • Groundwater modeling
    • Water technology and hydro-engineering
    • Groundwater, safety and public health
    • Groundwater ecosystem
    • Groundwater, hydrological system and geological environment
    • Groundwater management

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly notice that the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue – Groundwater Research” should be chosen during your submission.


    According to the following timetable:
