Special Issue "Waves and Wave Climate Analysis and Modeling"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 January 2020.
Institute of Coastal Research, Helmholtz Centre Geesthacht, Max-Planck-Str. 1, Geesthacht 21502, Germany
Interests: circulation and wave modeling; coastal ocean predictions; coupled model systems; modeling of marine environment; wave dynamics; coastal and regional oceanography
The aim of this Special Issue is to provide recent advances in the field of wind waves modeling and wave climate. Wave climate analysis and modeling play an important role in several applications such as coastal and metocean studies, design of wave energy harvesters, optimal ship routing, climate change issues, etc. This topic encompasses various probabilistic and statistical aspects and multivariate methods, including extreme value analysis methods and models, directional wave statistics, multivariate probability distributions, etc. Wave models are used for operational forecasting purposes, wave climate synthesis and analysis, wave climate change studies, coastal impact assessments, etc. The topic is also highly relevant to different engineering applications, such as wave interaction with coastal and offshore structures and design of coastal works.
Topics of interest for the Special Issue include but are not limited to:
- Probabilistic methods for wave climate analysis
- Wind-wave modeling
- Directional wave climate analysis
- Synergy of wind wave model with satellite and in situ observations
- Extreme waves

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 1400 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.
