Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Estuarine and coastal regions are heavily populated and well developed areas. Fresh river water carries sediment and deposits it as it enters the estuary, while salt water intrusion into the river mouth may affect the river’s ecology and environment. In coastal environments, tidal flow, current, and waves may cause beach erosion and variation of water quality. The hydrodynamics in estuaries and coasts is very complicated and requires a unique approach combining theoretical analysis, numerical modelling, physical laboratory experimental model study, as well as field observation. This Special Issue is set up to receive research papers investigating the hydrodynamics, sediment transport, and water quality in the region of estuaries and coasts. Topics include: fresh–salt water exchange in estuaries, estuarine and coastal sediment transport, beach erosion and nourishment, and water quality modelling in estuaries and coasts.

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 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 2200 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.
