Special Issue in Journal of Marine Science and Engineering: “Coastal Dynamics, Hazards, and Numerical Modelling” in Memory of Prof. Byung Ho Choi
According to the UN Atlas of the Oceans, about 44% of the world’s population lives in coastal areas within
150 km of the sea. On the other hand, coastal regions are constantly exposed to natural hazards and disasters such as storm waves, storm surges, floods and inundations due to tropical cyclones and storms, and tsunamis due to underwater earthquake, volcanic eruption, and landslides. For each disaster, it is not possible to reproduce, evaluate and even predict it without understanding the physical processes of each element of the Earth system (atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere, and biosphere) as a cause and the interaction among the elements.
This Special Issue seeks to compile the current state of the art related to climate impacts on coastal areas through coastal hazards due to changed frequency and intensity of tropical cyclones and extra-tropical cyclones, tropical cyclone induced storm surge, surface waves, and coastal flooding. Contributions are encouraged in topics including, but not limited
- Climate change impacts on tropical cyclone occurrence frequency
- Climate change impacts on tropical cyclone intensity
- Tropical and extra-tropical cyclone induced storm surge
- Tropical and extra-tropical cyclone induced surface waves
- Climate change impacts on coastal flooding
- Climate change impacts on coastal flood risk, and its assessment and management

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. Atmosphere is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1800 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.
