Special Issue "Submarine Landslides – Assessing the Stability of Submerged Slopes"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2018).
Analyzing the stability of natural submarine slopes is often challenging due to the inaccessibility of critical areas, limited data coverage, and uncertainties in potential trigger mechanisms. Nevertheless, knowing the stability of submarine slopes is essential for many applications. The aim of this Special Issue is to collate various innovative approaches that overcome these difficulties and make use of available data sets to assess the stability of submerged slopes. Typical data sets could include, but are not limited to, geophysical imaging, sediment samples, laboratory experiments, in situ measurements and monitoring. Case studies, as well as theoretical solutions, are welcome. This Special Issue provides an outlet for rapid, open access publication of peer-reviewed studies that use marine data sets to assess submarine slope stability.Dr. Morelia Urlaub
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. Geosciences 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 1500 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.
