Advances in Environmental and Engineering Research (AEER) is an international peer-reviewed Open Access journal published quarterly online by LIDSEN Publishing Inc. This periodical is devoted to publishing high-quality peer-reviewed papers that describe the most significant and cutting-edge research in all areas of environmental science and engineering. Work at any scale, from molecular biology through to ecology, is welcomed.

Main research areas include (but are not limited to):

  • Atmospheric pollutants
  • Air pollution control engineering
  • Climate change
  • Ecological and human risk assessment
  • Environmental management and policy
  • Environmental impact and risk assessment
  • Environmental microbiology
  • Ecosystem services, biodiversity and natural capital
  • Environmental economics
  • Control and monitoring of pollutants
  • Remediation of polluted soils and water
  • Fate and transport of contaminants
  • Water and wastewater treatment engineering
  • Solid waste treatment

Advances in Environmental and Engineering Research publishes a range of papers (original research, review, communication, opinion, case report, study protocol, comment, conference report, technical note, book review, etc.). We encourage authors to be succinct; however, authors should present their results in as much detail as necessary. Reviewers are expected to emphasize scientific rigor and reproducibility.

Indexing: COPE.

Rapid publication: manuscripts are undertaken in 11 days from acceptance to publication (median values for papers published in this journal in 2020, 1-2 days of FREE language polishing time is also included in this period).

About This Topic

Land-cover and land-use changes have both natural and anthropogenic causes. Landslides, flooding, volcanic eruptions, and wildfires as well as glaciation of landmasses and receding of ice shields are natural disturbances by the processes of the of the Earth system and its orbital parameters. Anthropogenic changes are deforestation for agricultural use and grazing of life stock for food and clothing, construction of water reservoirs and usage of blue water, mining for raw material, afforestation and urbanization for shelter. While these anthropogenic land-cover and land-use changes serve the benefits and prosperity of humankind, they like the natural changes alter the water, energy and trace-gas cycles and their interaction at the interface Earth-atmosphere via the exchanges of sensible and latent heat and matter.

Due to the more than quadrupling of the Earth population such changes have accelerated over the last century and are anticipated to further increase in the future. This special issue calls for contributions from research on the impact of all kind of Earth surface changes on the atmospheric water, energy and trace gas cycle at all scales from the urban to planetary scale. Papers on urban forest, green and white roofs for improved thermal comfort, coastal urbanization as well as on improved agricultural, grazing and fire protection practices are of special interest.

Original research reports, review articles, communications, and perspectives are welcome in all areas pertinent to the topic. All accepted papers will be published totally free of charge.

Submission

Manuscripts should be submitted online at http://www.lidsen.com/account-login by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website. Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. Guidelines for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts are available on the Instructions for Authors page. Advances in Environmental and Engineering Research is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by LIDSEN. Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript.

Modeling Tile Drainage Outflow in Thin Agricultural Soils with Impermeable under Layer in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada

Received: 30 December 2020;  Published: 28 June 2021;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2102016

Abstract

Subsurface tile drainage installation helps to maintain water table levels and to meet adequate crop moisture requirements. Artificial subsurface drainage continues to be a common practice in Newfoundland and Labrador (NL) and elsewhere around the world. The main objective of this study [...]

Initial Validation of a Replicated Field-scale Denitrifying Bioreactor Facility in a Boreal Environment

Received: 29 December 2020;  Published: 15 April 2021;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2102005

Abstract

Denitrifying bioreactor technology, where a solid carbon source (wood chips) acts as a reactive medium to intercept agricultural tile drainage water, has been successfully used to convert nitrate (NO3-) to di-nitrogen (N2) gas. Four full-size field-scale (80ft long x 10 ft. wide x 4 ft. deep), repli [...]

How to Prioritize Voluntary Dietary Modification

Received: 03 August 2020;  Published: 25 December 2020;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2004005

Abstract

Environmentally motivated voluntary diet modifications are the focus of much research and public discourse. Yet the nuanced multi-faceted, multi-dimensional nature of agriculture-earth interactions, and limited public environmental knowledge likely combine to undermine the efficacy of environmentall [...]
