There is a urgent need of knowledge to understand the response of estuaries and nearshore systems to current and near-future challenges, such as natural and man-induced global changes. Sea level rise, increase in the probability of the occurrence of extreme events, increase in water temperature, reduction of run-off, and increase in human pressure on the ecosystems are just some examples of the changes that these coastal systems are facing. The sustainable management of estuaries and nearshore systems is therefore one of the greatest scientific and technical challenges of today. To tackle this challenge, it is required to have a precise knowledge of the dynamics and biogeochemical processes, and their interactions and modeling.
This Special Issue will contribute to obtain further insight into the hydrodynamic, sedimentary, and ecological processes in bays, marshes, estuaries, deltas, and different types of beaches. Manuscripts focusing on the (complex and idealized) modeling of hydrodynamics and biogeochemical flows and their interactions are welcome. Additionally, reviews identifying research priorities and showing recent advances in this field are invited.

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.
