Special Issue "Hydrodynamics in Coastal Areas"

Interests: coastal hydrodynamics; physical oceanography; numerical modelling; sediment transport; dispersion of pollutants in marine environment; environmental coastal engineering
Coastal regions constitute geophysical areas of special interest for engineers and scientists that study the marine environment from a physical, chemical, biological and geological point of view. Human activities, living organisms and engineering structures are influential to this great and complicated environment. The hydrodynamics and environmental state of these geophysical basins are closely related to engineering and scientific issues such as coastal water circulation, matter transfer, the dispersion of pollutants, oil slicks, wave propagation, wave currents and longshore sand transport, wave–coastal structure interactions, interactions between hydrodynamics and vessels (ships), the transport and spreading of algal blooms, marine life and aquacultures, dredging, coastal geomorphology, etc. All the aforementioned subjects are closely related to the hydrodynamics of the coastal basin.
Research into these aspects is usually realized via laboratory experiments and physical models, in situ measurements (field works), and numerical/mathematical models. Special interest and particular challenges in this environment are related to harbors, aquaculture installations, the protection of coastal areas and water renewal. Prognosis and diagnosis are of great importance, since they contribute effectively to the better design and integrated management of these areas (ICM—integrated coastal management). Research and review papers based on new ideas and modern innovative approaches related to the above issues of science and engineering, with the subject of hydrodynamics in coastal areas at the basic core, are welcome for publication.

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. Water 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 2600 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.
