Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Sea level rise and an increase in sea storminess are only some of the effects caused by climate change and variability. These phenomena interact at different temporal and spatial scales and play a fundamental role in coastal vulnerability and resilience, thus severely affecting the natural environment, residential areas, local ecosystems, existing engineering works, recreational and tourist activities, among others. Therefore, to prevent and/or mitigate such impact, a constant monitoring and a detailed analysis of the sea state are needed.

Currently, a large variety of sensors and models fulfill these requirements and are available to monitor and forecast the phenomena that govern the ocean waves. These tools provide a large amount of data relating to, for example, measurements of hydrodynamic parameters, reconstruction of wave motion and seabed morphology, as well as the prediction of meteo-marine events and beach inundation. However, such tools are rarely integrated to perform a deep and accurate analysis of the ocean waves and the phenomena related to their propagation toward the coast.

The Special Issue in intended to publish studies based on the combination of data provided by the above-mentioned tools (e.g., integration between field observations and numerical findings), in order to enhance the understanding of wave propagation and hydrodynamics in the coastal region in light of climate and environmental change.

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.
