Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
The main focus of this special issue is an up-to-date report on the state of the art of all aspects of marine studies, remote sensing (satellite, video, drone etc.), and sea modelling to support marine sustainable development.
Ocean and coastal zones represent a complex dynamic natural and human interrelated processes. Many physical phenomena, such as wind waves, swell, tides and wave driven currents are the dominant mechanisms which govern the physical and biological processes in the sea environment and can be affected in some regions by the anthropic activities. The study of these phenomena requires a multi-disciplinary approach and the implementation of monitoring techniques at different spatial and temporal scales.
Contributions dealing with innovative monitoring techniques, including remote sensing and management of the relevant processes, numerical models of the biophysical and/or physical processes of the sea environment, pollution in coastal areas and coastal protection are strongly encouraged.

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. Sustainability is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 1900 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.
