    Special Issue on Watershed Management

     

    A watershed is simply the geographic area through which water flows across the land and drains into a common body of water, whether a stream, river, lake, or ocean. The watershed boundary will more or less follow the highest ridgeline around the stream channels and meet at the bottom or lowest point of the land where water flows out of the watershed, the mouth of the waterway. Much of the water comes from rainfall and stormwater runoff. The quality and quantity of stormwater is affected by all the alterations to the land--mining, agriculture, roadways, urban development, and the activities of people within a watershed. Watersheds are usually separated from other watersheds by naturally elevated areas. The goal of this special issue is to provide a platform for scientists and academicians all over the world to promote, share, and discuss various new issues and developments in the area of watershed management.

     

    In this special issue, we invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles that explore watershed management. In this special issue, potential topics include, but are not limited to:

     

    • Focusing programs and projects geographically
    • Prioritizing and targeting water quality or ecosystem problems
    • Promoting a high level of public involvement in projects and problem-solving
    • Measuring success through monitoring and other data gathering
    • Water distribution
    • Watershed governance

     

    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.
