Special Issue "Sea Surface Temperature: From Observation to Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2021).
Interests: climate change; climate extremes; SST; weather numerical modelling; extreme precipitation; atmosphere–ocean interaction; Mediterranean meteorology
In a global and accelerated climate change environment, sea surface temperature (SST) was defined by the World Meteorological Organization as one of the essential climate variables that contribute to the characterization of the Earth’s climate. Recent studies confirmed that a huge amount of energy is being stored in the oceans; so, SST emerged as a proxy of this energy reservoir, especially to derive future trends in climate change and impacts on the frequency of weather extremes and their growing impact on human societies. This energy storage has a considerable impact on the atmosphere–ocean system through heat exchange. More attention is being paid to SST monitoring and analysis so that advances have been recorded in these fields.
As such, original research and review papers are welcome on the main subjects of sea surface temperature measurement techniques, data collection, and analysis. The main topics welcome in this special issue of JMSE include, but are not limited to:
- SST measuring techniques, both in situ or remote sensing
- Measuring SST: sensors technical development, measuring techniques
- SST measurement networks: buoys, gliders, remote sensing, etc.
- SST data treatment (gap data filling, neural networks, SST series reconstruction, etc.)
- Remote sensing: measuring, validation
- SST climate: variability, spatial distribution, trends
- Impacts on marine biodiversity, aquaculture, and fisheries
- Impacts on atmospheric phenomena, especially extremes
- Teleconnection with climatic patterns
- Physical and dynamical oceanography: correlation with sea level and salinity
- SST and general ocean circulation
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.
