Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

During the past several decades, numerous sediment records have become available through the shallow and deep drilling of seas and oceans. Marine sediment cores continue to provide unique opportunities to investigate the climate, ecosystem, and long-term landscape evolution and geomorphological processes. Geochemical and mineralogical investigations are crucial for understanding the evolution of marine basins and for assessing changes through time in different geological settings. With this Special Issue, we encourage contributions from geochemistry and mineralogy that utilize marine sedimentary successions with the aim to reconstruct paleoenvironments. In order to evaluate the impact of different changes, we need reliable and continuous reconstructions of paleoenvironmental conditions. This Special Issue invites contributions that present recent scientific results regarding any aspect of paleoenvironmental research spaning from Anthropocene to the Quaternary marine sedimentary records from around the world that can provide insights into the spatial and temporal distribution of geochemical and mineralogical proxies in paleoenvironmental reconstructions combining different approaches, both geophysical acoustic methods and sediment cores. Furthermore, we encourage contributions that outline future perspectives and visions of marine paleorecords using a multi-platform approach.

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. Journal of Marine Science and Engineering 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 2200 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.
