Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The subject of rotating flows is important for many engineers, mathematicians and physicists. The Earth’s weather system is controlled by the combined effects of solar radiation and rotation. The jet stream and ocean circulations occur as a direct result of the Earth’s rotation. Furthermore, mesoscale vortex structures contribute significantly to the transfer of heat, salt, and other substances in the ocean. This is one of the most effective mechanisms of trans-frontal mixing. Theoretical studies of vortices lead to the search for new analytical approaches to the description of vortex dynamics. For example, high-resolution sea-surface height fields constructed by merging measurements from two simultaneously-operating altimeters have revealed that low frequency variability is dominated by westward-propagating nonlinear mesoscale eddies throughout most of the world’s oceans:

  1. Physical mesoscale and sub-mesoscale processes and phenomena in the hydrosphere and atmosphere
  2. Hydrosphere and atmosphere interaction: The role of mesoscale processes
  3. Investigation of mesoscale and sub-mesoscale processes in the hydrosphere and atmosphere by remote sensing methods
  4. Numerical and laboratory modeling of mesoscale and sub-mesoscale processes and phenomena in the hydrosphere and atmosphere
  5. Operational oceanography and information technologies
  6. Instruments and methods for studying the hydrosphere and atmosphere

In addition, there is a general invitation to submit any paper on remote sensing of mesoscale and sub-mesoscale in the ocean for consideration for publication in this Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 2600 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.
