Special Issue "Mathematical Modeling of Sediment Transport in Coastal Areas"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 August 2021.
Interests: applied mathematics; fluid dynamics; free surface flows; scientific computing; computational mathematics
Waves, currents, and sediments interact in coastal zones where large rivers/estuaries and coast confluence. Such interaction shifts the wave phase/amplitude and leads to changes in current profiles, which influence the sediment dynamics including the sediment transport, and its vertical distributions (density variations).
Investigation of the mechanisms governing the interactions between waves, currents, and sediments is necessary for engineers to design the ports and protect the shores, for the scientists to provide an insight into the unknown coastal processes, and for managers and environmental activists to manage the coast and protect the shorelines. Mathematical models as strong tools to study the coastal phenomenon must be developed to reveal the unknown physical aspects of the coastal processes and sediment dynamics.
The underwater avalanches and other turbidity currents contribute greatly to the sediment transport from coastal areas to deeper regions [1,2]. Henceforth, their investigation is of particular interest to understand global sediment transport in aquatic systems.
In this Special Issue, we invite scientists working on different aspects of sediment transport, in muddy, sandy or mixed environments with a focus on mathematical (numerical/analytical) models, to share their most recent results/findings/approaches, and give reviews or examples encompassing different aspects of wave–current–sediment interactions and sediment dynamics in coastal zones. Papers may deal with wave, current, and sediment analysis, numerical modeling or analytical solutions and should be supported by experimental/field studies.

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.
