Submission Deadline: 12 December 2018
IEEE Access invites manuscript submissions in the area of Advanced Sensor Technologies on Water Monitoring and Modeling.
Developing new methods and technologies for water pollution control, water resources management, and restoration of watershed ecosystems are critical for securing water security and sustainable development. The biophysicochemical parameters in an aqueous system, such as flow, hydraulic heads, temperature, pH, conductivity, turbidity, microorganisms, solutes concentration, etc., are of great significance in water research. Traditional methods for aqueous environmental monitoring and modeling are heavily dependent on instant point-in-space measurements, laboratory analysis, and physical and computing infrastructure. However, these methods are not only of high cost, but also are unable to timely provide many of the required spatiotemporal features. Thus, there is a clear need for continuous on-line monitoring water quality and hydrologic conditions using advanced sensors technologies across spatiotemporal resolutions.
The rapid expansion of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, cloud computing and big data promote unprecedented advances in signal processing and information system. Such advances support the development of sensing technologies, as well as software-defined networks, which allow effective monitoring and modeling for water issues. Sensing and control systems that are suitable for the effective monitoring of biophysicochemical parameters, as well as for detecting concentrations of interest in solutes, are crucial to investigate water health and chemical evolutions, and also to timely implement prevention and management strategies.
The purpose of this Special Section in IEEE Access is to solicit manuscripts on the emerging trends, issues, and challenges in smart sensing for aqueous environment monitoring and modeling. Practical studies describing techniques or information system for real-time and in-situ recording of biophysicochemical parameters in an aqueous environment are encouraged. Letters, reports, and reviews with a multidisciplinary focus are also welcome. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
We also highly recommend the submission of multimedia with each article as it significantly increases the visibility, downloads, and citations of articles.
