Marine renewable energy has gained great attention due to the rapid increase of energy demand in highly-populated coastal regions and its potential to mitigate the effects of global warming as a result of greenhouse gas emissions. In particular, there has been extensive research and project development over the last decade on wave and tidal energy because they are highly predictable and have greater resources compared to other MHK energy sources. However, many challenges remain in terms of improving the accuracy of resource characterization and the understanding of interactions with the ambient marine environment. This Special Issue invites prospective authors to submit their most recent marine-energy-related studies on resource characterization and environmental interactions.

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.
