Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Estuaries and coastal zones have aquatic ecosystems with high biodiversity, but also under high anthropogenic pressure worldwide. The planning and management of transitional and coastal water bodies are essential to prevent their deterioration and increase the protection and quality of aquatic ecosystems, as well as those of the terrestrial areas and wetlands that directly depend on them.

In this regard, it is important to disseminate the most up-to-date scientific knowledge on water resource planning and management in transition and coastal areas. Thus, this Special Issue invites significant research on in situ and remote sensing monitoring (e.g., physical parameters, microplastics), pressure analysis and assessment methodologies, hydromorphology changes and impacts, risk degradation, assessment of climate change impact on water quality, water quality modeling, nature-based solutions and measures for water quality restauration and ecosystem improvement, and decision support systems.

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.

Overuse of coastal regions may lead to coastal erosion and shoreline retreat, threatening the inherent life and property of the coast. This is because typhoon waves with storm surges frequently attack overdeveloped coasts and related structures. In the present study, coastal buffer and protection zones were defined for the management of coastal disasters. The coastal buffer zone may offer remarkable advantages to avoid improper coastal use and limit the impact of extreme events by reducing erosion, mitigating coastal disasters, improving water quality, expanding habitats, and minimizing coastal degradation. Further, factors affecting the establishment of coastal buffer zones were classified according to natural and anthropogenic characteristics. Moreover, regarding the direction of research into coastal buffer zones, themes and countermeasures for coastal buffer zone management were discussed from the perspectives of technology, planning, and management policies. Finally, the application of numerical models to assess the impact factors in coastal buffer zones are proposed. Full article
