Development of human societies has a demonstrated impact on Earth’s natural equilibrium. Eutrophication of water bodies is a generalized regional scale problem that in the end has impacts at global scale. Recurrent red tides and harmful cyanobacteria blooms are threatening more frequently environmental quality and human health. There is not a common international strategy to give a response to eutrophication regional problems. Urging actions are needed to prevent much more disturbance in the P and N cycles and prevent and mitigate eutrophication. Ecological Engineering practice can have a predominant role in the abatement of such pollution problems.
The main objective of this Special Issue (SI) will be evaluating ecological engineering technologies and procedures to reduce nutrients and other pollutants and avoid eutrophication and microalgae blooms. The main interest is into solutions addressing discharges with high flows and relatively low pollution concentrations such as agricultural drainage waters or urban storm waters.
The topics of the SI will be:
Ecological engineering technologies for nutrient control: drainage tiles, constructed wetlands, buffer strips, and others.
Ecological engineering methods to reduce internal loads and decrease nutrient release from lakes, reservoirs and ponds.
Combination of Ecological engineering strategies with conventional restoration methods.
Effects of nutrients in algal blooms development with eutrophication examples of around the Globe.
