Special Issue "Advances in Coastal Hydrodynamics and Wetland Modeling"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 March 2020.
Interests: hydroecological modeling; hydrodynamic modeling and simulation; sea level rise; storm surges; computational fluid dynamics
Interests: estuarine physical processes; wetland creation; environmental fluid mechanics; human impacts in coastal environments; sustainable design
Wetlands along coastal margins provide numerous ecosystem services, from supporting fisheries and transforming nutrients to sequestering carbon and attenuating wave action. These ecosystems are also impacted by climate change, accelerating rates of sea level rise, and human activity. As communities implement or currently rely on nature and nature-based coastal defences, tools are needed for predicting how wetlands change in response to these drivers. This special issue will focus on predictive modeling of wetland change and the data that informs these models.
We invite submissions on coastal modeling from a range of disciplines (e.g., hydrodynamics, ecology, and/or geomorphology) and techniques, as well as fieldwork and observational research that supports modeling efforts. These include research using numerical and computer-based models, experimental modeling, remote sensing, or other types of assessments in the coastal regions.

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. 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 1200 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.
