Special Issue "Observation and Modeling of Coastal Morphodynamics"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 May 2020).
Interests: beach morphology, ripple morphodynamics, scour processes, storm impacts, beach nourishment, seafloor mapping, autonomous aerial and underwater systems
Coastal Morphodynamics aims to understand the bi-directional interplay between seabed morphology and hydrodynamic flow. Robotic autonomous systems (in the air, on the surface, and underwater) for remote sensing, machine learning, and numerical modeling have sparked profound advances in our ability to capture and quantify sediment transport and morphologic patterns. This Special Issue seeks to highlight innovative studies that incorporate new approaches to coastal monitoring, modeling, or analytical techniques to explore and understand these interactions with implications for beach erosion response, coastal resilience, storm recovery, impacts to human-built infrastructure, or coastal management, policy, and restoration. Contributions are particularly sought that integrate multiple techniques and that illustrate innovations with applicability beyond the specific case study.

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. Water 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.
