Sediment transport processes in combined wave and current flows play an important role in many issues including coastal resiliency, shoreline stability, estuarine dynamics, and biological productivity. New technologies to measure fine-scale processes along with high-fidelity numerical modelling have continued to produce new information on sediment dynamics in shallow water systems. The purpose of this Special Issue is to present the latest theoretical, experimental, observational, or numerical modelling advancements in sediment transport research under combined wave and current flows. The Special Issue will accept submissions on any aspect of combined wave and current flows but is especially interested in receiving papers on the following topics:
- Sediment transport processes at high wave and current angles
- The effects of waves of finite duration, such as vessel wake, in sediment transport
- The interaction between combined flows and sediment in the vicinity of hydraulic structures
- Sediment transport in regions where the waves and currents are transitioning such as inlets or deltas
- Vegetated regions with combined wave and current flows
- Sediment transport in regions with limited sediment supply such as hard bottoms
Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com 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. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Marine Science and Engineering is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 350 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
