This Special Issue is devoted to geomorphological studies on coastal dynamic and evolution. Results of field studies, observations, and surveys on morphological changes of the shoreline and/or dune system at different time scales, from hours, days, to months and years, as well as historical coastal evolution investigations, carried out by means of aerial photos and/or satellite images, and research results concerning coastal changes at scale of decades/centuries, linked to past and future sea level variations and/or land tectonic movements, are welcome. Study cases have to investigate relatively large spatial areas, i.e., coastal sectors of tens of kilometers. Last, investigations on coastal wave climates and the characterization of marine storms in a context of climate change scenarios are also of interest.

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).
