Call for papers: Special Issue on “Wetland Systems to Control Runoff”

International Journal of Water (IJW)

Call for papers: Special Issue on “Wetland Systems to Control Runoff”

Guest Editor: Dr Miklas Scholz, University of Edinburgh, UK

This special issue aims to integrate natural and constructed wetlands and sustainable drainage techniques into traditional water and wastewater systems used to treat surface runoff and associated diffuse pollution.

The objectives are:

* to present a comprehensive collection of timely, novel and innovative research case studies in the area of wetland systems applied for the treatment of runoff;

* to demonstrate to practitioners how natural and constructed wetland systems can be integrated into traditional wastewater systems, which are predominantly applied for the treatment of surface runoff and diffuse pollution; and

* to assess the design, operation, management and water treatment performance of sustainable urban drainage systems including constructed wetlands.

The relevant fundamental principles of water quality management, and water and wastewater treatment will be covered. However, the main focus will be on assessing sustainable treatment technologies and current case studies related to constructed wetlands and sustainable drainage systems applied for runoff and diffuse pollution treatment.

Academics, professionals and students in the water and environmental engineering, science and management areas, as well as the wastewater industry will be interested in the detailed design, operation, management, process control and water quality monitoring and applied modelling issues presented in this issue.

For more information, subject coverage, notes for intending authors, submission dates and contact information, please see the Journal Call for papers website.
