    Special Issue on River Sediment Dynamics


    Under natural conditions, rivers are always in constant development and change. According to the movement characteristics and the motion law of the river, the river sediment dynamics based on flow structure, sediment movement, fluvial processes and river bed deformation prediction analysis, laid a theoretical foundation for the protection of water resources and water ecological environment construction research. It is widely used in the related disciplines of river engineering, irrigation and drainage engineering, hydropower, waterway and port engineering etc.


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

    • Hydraulics
    • Flow structure
    • General characteristics of river flow and sediment
    • Water flow movement
    • Law of sediment movement
    • River shoal evolution
    • Prediction of riverbed deformation
    • Study on engineering sediment

    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 – River Sediment Dynamics” should be chosen during your submission.


    According to the following timetable:
