Advances in Environmental and Engineering Research (AEER) is an international peer-reviewed Open Access journal published quarterly online by LIDSEN Publishing Inc. This periodical is devoted to publishing high-quality peer-reviewed papers that describe the most significant and cutting-edge research in all areas of environmental science and engineering. Work at any scale, from molecular biology through to ecology, is welcomed.

Main research areas include (but are not limited to):

  • Atmospheric pollutants
  • Air pollution control engineering
  • Climate change
  • Ecological and human risk assessment
  • Environmental management and policy
  • Environmental impact and risk assessment
  • Environmental microbiology
  • Ecosystem services, biodiversity and natural capital
  • Environmental economics
  • Control and monitoring of pollutants
  • Remediation of polluted soils and water
  • Fate and transport of contaminants
  • Water and wastewater treatment engineering
  • Solid waste treatment

Advances in Environmental and Engineering Research publishes a range of papers (original research, review, communication, opinion, study protocol, comment, conference report, technical note, book review, etc.). We encourage authors to be succinct; however, authors should present their results in as much detail as necessary. Reviewers are expected to emphasize scientific rigor and reproducibility.

About This Topic

Surface water bodies provide crucial and valuable resources for water supply, ecological service, recreation, and other useful functions. Because of rapid economic development, population expansion, and land use change resulting in excessive point and nonpoint source pollutants discharged, surface water bodies were subject to serious deterioration on water quality. Therefore the numerical model becomes an important tool to resolve the spatiotemporal variations in water quality and sediment transport and can be utilized for water quality prediction and management. The special issue for hydrology, water quality, and sediment simulation modelling will focus on the surface water bodies which include watersheds, lakes, rivers/streams, tidal estuaries, and coastal areas.

Original research reports, review articles, communications, and perspectives are welcome in all areas pertinent to the topic.
