To better understand and forecast the evolution of our planet, geological mapping of the seafloor represents a fundamental goal to achieve in the coming decades.
Marine geological maps are fundamental for planning offshore activities in commercial exploration, geohazard assessment, and the sustainable use of marine resources.
Recent technological advances in marine surveys, and the sharing of data uploaded to large databases, both support the achievement of a complete mapping of the seafloor.
This Special Issue encourages the submission of papers concerning both examples of mapping of the seafloor and results from innovative methodologies for seabed surveying:
- Examples of surveys from different geological settings (e.g., slope gravitational instability, sedimentary structures fields, etc.);
- Integrated marine geological maps that are useful in seabed characterization for the installation of infrastructures, in the prevention of geohazards, and in the preservation of habitats;
- Outcomes of national or international geological mapping projects;
- Results from surveys performed using innovative techniques or returned through interpretative techniques of image analysis, spatial prediction and machine learning.

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.
