Special Issue "Application of Remote Sensing Methods to Monitor Coastal Zones"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2019.
Regional sea-level change, winds, waves, currents, extreme events, sediment supply, land-use change, and urbanization are all forcing agents that can change coastal zones. How coastal environments respond to natural and anthropogenic factors depends on the characteristics of the forcing agents, as well as on the characteristics of the coastal systems that remain poorly known and mostly unsurveyed. To better understand changes affecting coastal zones and to provide useful information to decision-makers, it is crucial to collect and analyze various types of observations covering local to global scales, and both short- and long-term time scales. In this context, remote-sensing methods, ranging from shore-based, aerial, or space platforms, including active and passive sensors, offer unique skills to overcome this challenge. In this Special Issue “Application of Remote Sensing Methods to Monitor Coastal Zones”, we invite authors to submit new innovative research that focuses on the application of remote-sensing methodologies (preferably new ones) to monitor coastal zones, including forcing agents (e.g., sea level, waves, wind, currents, etc.) and environmental responses (e.g. topographic and bathymetric response, land cover, etc.), from short to long-term time scales. New software tools or applications (e.g., Google Earth Engine, QGIS, etc.) that involve the use of remote-sensing datasets to monitor coastal processes are also encouraged for submission to this Special Issue.

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.
