The coastal zone is under continuous anthropogenic pressures, because it includes the largest percentage of the world population and economy.
Moreover, coastal areas are also under high environmental risk due to severe meteorological and oceanic conditions. Sea level changes due to waves, tides, and storm surges in tandem with climatic-induced changes increase the risk of coastal flooding and the inundation of significant coastal areas. The potential damages to infrastructure, cost in lives, and ecological impacts increase the need for accurate operational platforms to both monitor and forecast the coastal ocean dynamics.
The pollution risks due to industry, urban environment, agriculture, oil drilling, and shipping also require the development of state-of-the-art techniques to measure and simulate the coastal environment to monitor its quality, develop the most appropriate measures in case of an accident (e.g., oil spills), and improve long-term design and management. The meteorological and river inputs in the ocean are significant factors that have to be cautiously included in both observational and modeling efforts. The coastal ocean is not only an economic source due to naval transportation, fisheries, and tourism but also due to the energy that can be produced under the exploration of ocean movements (e.g., waves, currents, sea level).

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2000 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.
