The understanding of coastal morphodynamics is the basis for the preservation of natural coastal ecosystems, and for their correct management. Coasts are one of the most complex systems, the result of the interaction of oceans, land, and the atmosphere. This complexity implies a great fragility, especially under increasing human pressure and the consequences of climate change. In recent decades, knowledge about coastal processes and landforms has experienced a great increase, and this Special Issue aims to compile current research and future perspectives on coastal morphodynamics.
The following contributions dealing with the dynamics of the variety of coastal systems are invited:
- sandy coasts (beaches and dunes)
- rock coasts
- tidal complexes and estuaries
- hazards and risks to coastal heritage
Papers can be based on field data, laboratory experiments, or modeling covering the different time-scales in morphodynamics.

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.
