Special Issue: Geo-Hydrological Risks Management
Guest Editors: Dr. Danilo Godone, Prof. Changdong Li, Dr. Louise Vick
Submission Deadline: 31 December 2020
We are organizing a Special Issue that may be of interest to you. As Guest Editor, I cordially invite you to submit a paper for consideration and possible publication in a Special Issue on “Geo-Hydrological Risks Management” to be published in Geosciences, an open access journal on geoscience, future earth and planetary science, published monthly online by MDPI, indexed by Scopus (citescore 1.82) and ESCI (Web of Science).
This Special Issue of Geosciences aims to gather, high-quality, original research articles and technical notes on the use of geosciences, applied to geo-hydrological risk management. The Special Issue will highlight case studies, best practices, and applied research. The use of geoscience tools is an, undeniable, added value when coping with natural disasters and their risk management. Survey devices, both close range (e.g., GNSS) and remote (e.g., UAVs, remote sensing) and mapping tools, such as G.I.S., contribute to improve the knowledge of investigated phenomena and, consequently, their risk management. Thanks to the accuracy and richness of geometric and thematic data, risk management is facilitated by and contributes to, among others, risk mitigation and the development of sustainable adaptation strategies. Therefore, I would like to invite you to submit recent work, in the form of an article, concerning the above-mentioned topics. The use of open source approaches is highly appreciated. The preliminary submission of a short abstract outlining the aims of the research and its main results is encouraged in order to check, at an early stage, if the contribution fits the scope of the Special Issue.
Furthermore, a Review Article is encouraged and it will be published in the Special Issue free of charge. We hope you find this topic of interest and choose to publish your work in Geosciences. If you could let us know within a week or so, it would greatly help the management of the Special Issue.
We would also appreciate if you could forward this to your team members and colleagues who may also be interested in the topic.
Thank you for your consideration and please contact us if you have any questions or suggestions.
