The main focus of this Special Issue is the state-of-the-art and recent research on continental shelf vulnerability and relative management strategies for protecting coastal areas from a sustainable perspective.
The outlook of mitigation strategies against flooding and erosion and in the perspective of possible climate change are of interest. Protection against sea level rise will be especially important, as changes in sea level damage beaches and coastal systems. Contributions dealing with ecological coastal defense and innovative monitoring technique are strongly encouraged. Further, innovation in management tools for coastal managers and applied research in the topic of coastal zone management are also welcome.
Conservation of coastal systems and ecosystems requires the insights of a number of monodisciplinary, multidisciplinary, as well as integral studies and approaches. Under this vision, in this Special Issue, an ensemble of interdisciplinary articles will be then collected, emphasizing the importance of tackles technical and scientific problems at different scales and from different point of view.
