Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The 15th conference of Spanish Days of Ports and Coasts Engineering provides a stimulating and enriching forum for coastal engineers and scientists to discuss the latest developments in marine and coastal technology, combining practical application with technological and scientific achievements, on the following conference themes:

Wave climate and physical oceanography;

Environment, discharges, and coastal water quality;

Coastal, harbor, and offshore structures;

Coastal processes and shore protection;

Integrated coastal management;

Climate change and coastal flood and erosion risk;

Port planning and management;

Marine spatial planning and European marine strategy.

This Special Issue presents a selection of papers from the conference. The papers give insight into the theoretical and practical aspects related to coastal and ocean engineering. Coastal and ocean structures, breakwaters, revetments, coastal field measurement and monitoring, combined physical and numerical modelling, port planning and management, integrated coastal management, climate change, tsunamis, and coastal hydrodynamics are the main topics covered in this Special Issue.

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 550 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.
