Terraced landscapes have been receiving renovated interest all over the world. Terracing was recognized as a fundamental component of agricultural systems, both for its cultural value as well as for its importance in guaranteeing food production in unfavorable environments. Consequently, the scientific community has started to investigate the environmental effects related to terracing. In this framework, hydrological and hydrogeological processes occurring in terraced landscapes are of the utmost interest for their implications related to land and water management in different areas of the world.
The aim of the present special issue is to gather studies related to the relationship between terraced landscapes and hydrogeological hazards. The guest editors encourage the submission of research papers and reviews dealing with hydrological–geological risk mitigation given by terraced landscapes, with the potential hazards induced by degraded and/or abandoned terracing, and with effective terraces management strategies.
Submission deadline is 30 September 2020. Please send an abstract beforehand to the guest editors , and with a cc to the editorial assistant . They will be glad to advise you on the suitability of your intended contribution. Find out !
