In the shallow coastal region, fluid flows often exhibit complicated behaviors strongly connected to physical effects, such as turbulence, wave–structure interaction, wave–current interaction, wave breaking, pycnocline, and thermocline. The resulting complex motion of waves typically spawns issues in coastal hazards and environmental impacts; a notable example is huge and turbulent whirlpool generated inside the harbor during a tsunami event. As the prediction of such complex phenomena requires dedicated considerations of the controlling physics, unveiling them is still recognized as important and is thus a popular topic in coastal and ocean engineering. Therefore, recent research is still leaning towards a better understanding of coastal hydrodynamic processes, which tend to be highly complex and turbulence-dominant.
In this Special Issue, we invite high quality research papers on various topics related to complex nearshore hydrodynamics, including but not limited to:
- Multiscale, multiphysics phenomena;
- Advanced/new modeling approaches;
- Sediment transport mechanism;
- Coastal hazards by tsunamis/storm surges;
- Turbulent mixing in nearshore scale;
- Pollutant advection–dispersion;
- Generation and evolution of infra-gravity waves.
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 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.
