Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is a continuation of our previous Special Issue, which was entitled "Intelligent Approaches in Predicting Hydrodynamics and Sediment Transport".

The objective of this Special Issue is to introduce intelligent and innovative approaches into the prediction of hydrodynamics and sediment transport in riverine, coastal, and estuarine areas. These approaches may cover, but are not limited to, aspects of data collection, model development/improvement, process parametrization, numerical experiment design, and results analysis. We encourage studies of stage/water level, streamflow/current, storm surge, waves, salinity, temperature, sediment transport, short- and long-term morphological changes in rivers, lakes, bays, deltas, and coasts. We are also interested in the impacts of extreme events (e.g., flood, cold fronts, and tropical storm), land subsidence, sea level rise and human activities (e.g., deep waterway projects, sediment diversion projects, navigation channel dredging, and hydraulic structures). The applications of new techniques/methodologies in modeling, such as data assimilation, remote sensing, neutral networks, machine learning, and high-performance computing, are especially welcome.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2300 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.
