Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Special Issue in Symmetry: Geophysical Fluid Dynamics and Symmetry
Interests: climate sciences; physical oceanography; ocean changes and impact on climate at regional and global scale; air–sea exchanges and changes; shaping of the ocean dynamics and climate change on marine ecosystems
This Special Issue will concentrate on nonlinear ocean dynamics (in particular at mesoscale and sub-mesoscale) and on the mechanisms inherent to these nonlinearities, in particular, flow instabilities and interactions of coherent structures.
Theoretical contributions and process studies lie at the core of this topic. Studies based on observations or on more general numerical modeling are welcome, provided they concentrate on the mechanisms of nonlinear ocean dynamics. Purely descriptive regional studies should be avoided. Mechanisms involving coupled atmospheric and oceanic flows will be considered.

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. 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 1600 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.
