Special Issue "Soil Erosion by Water"
A special issue of Water (ISSN 2073-4441).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 June 2017
This Special Issue will discuss new trends in modelling soil erosion from local, regional, national and continental scale. Preference will be given to new introduced modeling techniques for estimating soil loss by water (or wind). Authors can submit their work related to each of the main factors contributing to erosion modelling: Soil, climate (rainfall), topography, land cover, crop management and conservation practices. The Special Issue can include research studies related to rainfall erosivity and interactions with natural hazards or ecosystem services. We also encourage submissions on the impact of soil conservation policies, future land use changes (including scenario analysis) and climate change in soil erosion modeling. Special focus will be also given to model erosion in agricultural lands. This Special Issue can also include relevant topics such as dessertification, land degradation and sediment transport.
