Special Issue "Drivers and Consequences of Ocean Acidification on Different Temporal and Spatial Scales"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 August 2021).
Ocean acidification (OA) has been identified as a major threat to ocean ecosystems because of the unprecedented rate of change in ocean CO2 chemistry since the starting of the anthropogenic activity. This change has unknown consequences for marine chemistry, life, and resources. This Special Issue is open for manuscript submissions on different topics dealing with OA from observations, to experiments or predictions from model results in different spatial and temporal scales, including the following topics:
- Changing carbonate chemistry from coastal to open ocean
- Organism to ecosystem responses and consequences of OA
- Natural analogs to OA
- Methods to study OA and data integration and analysis, capacity building
- Societal consequences of OA, regional policies, mitigation, and adaptation

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 1800 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.
