Special Issue "Lagrangian Transport in Geophysical Fluid Flows"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 November 2020).
Interests: transport and exchange processes in oceanic and atmospheric flows; effects of transport processes on redistribution of physical, chemical, and biological tracers in the ocean and atmosphere; Lagrangian approach to studying transport; ocean and atmosphere dynamics; dynamical systems theory; Hamiltonian dynamics
Many questions in oceanography, meteorology, and related disciplines involve, in an unavoidable way, transport—transport of mass, properties, biogeochemical tracers, pollutants, or biological organisms. A Lagrangian perspective, where one tracks individual parcels, presents a natural framework for characterizing transport pathways, barriers, and associated exchanges. The aim of this Special Issue is to assemble a variety of articles to develop a deeper understanding of the Lagrangian transport and exchange processes in geophysical fluid flows. We welcome all contributions, ranging from theoretical advancements to numerical modeling and analysis of observational datasets; from idealized problems to realistic flows; and from submeso-scales to global scales.

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. Fluids 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.
