The effective management of environmental pollution has become one of the most important goals pursued by governments, industries, communities, and researchers around the world. Environmental modelling has long been recognised as an effective measure for facilitating such an objective, and has thus received increasing research interest. The modelling provides a valuable framework for describing complex environmental processes and interactions, evaluating various pollution problems existing in the media of water, air and soil, investigating effective pollution mitigation approaches, and examining the impacts of different environmental management strategies. In recent years, numerous advances and research achievements have been made in the field of environmental modelling. The purpose of this special issue is to publish latest results of the research and development of modelling for the management of environmental pollution.
