Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Global warming, in synergy with ocean acidification, eutrophication, deoxygenation, as well as the ongoing exploitation of living marine resources drive major changes in marine biogeochemistry and ecosystems. Marine biogeochemistry is the study of the physical, biological, geological and chemical processes that distribute and transform nutrients and other chemical species in the marine environment. The purpose of this Special Issue is to provide a update of the current state of marine environmental science and marine biogeochemistry.

The Issue’s main topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

– The biochemical, physiological, and ecological consequences of contaminants to marine organisms and ecosystems;
– The biogeochemistry of naturally occurring and anthropogenic substances;
– Models that describe and predict the above processes;
– Monitoring studies, to the extent that their results provide new information on functional processes;
– Methodological papers describing improved quantitative techniques for the marine sciences;
– Ocean carbon cycle and biogeochemical processes, based on multiple approaches such as observations, remote-sensing, models and simulations.
– Ocean acidification, deoxygenation and eutrophication, due to the rapid climate change.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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.
