According to the UN Atlas of the Oceans, about 44% of the world’s population lives in coastal areas within 150 km of the sea. On the other hand, coastal regions are constantly exposed to natural hazards and disasters such as storm surge and waves, floods, and inundations due to tropical cyclones and storms, as well as tsunamis due to underwater earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and landslides.
Numerical models of coastal hazards and environment are important tools for the prediction and estimation of those coastal hazards, and for the evaluation of their impacts on coastal morphodynamics, coastal lagoons and wetlands, and the coastal built-in environment.
This Special Issue seeks to compile the current state-of-the-art research related to numerical models from model developments to their applications in coastal hazards forecast and hindcast, mitigation, and in environmental impacts assessment in the above-mentioned coastal zones. Contributions are encouraged in topics including, but not limited to:
- Numerical models in storm surge and waves, tsunami, and coastal flooding;
- Numerical models in nearshore waves and currents, tide, and circulations;
- Numerical models of coastal pollutions;
- Storm surge and waves modelling due to tropical cyclones;
- Tsunami modelling due to underwater earthquakes, volcano eruptions, and landslides;
- Coastal hydrodynamic modelling in the above-mentioned coastal zones.

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.
