Special Issue Information
Coastal areas are specific, transitional areas between land and sea, and they are therefore intensely exposed to both terrestrial and aquatic influences. These areas are of great importance for both environmental processes and human activities since various and complex land–sea–human interactions occur. Their importance and vulnerability are even greater when it is considered that coastal areas are very often densely populated and that they support various commercial activities. All natural and anthropogenic influences and (bio)geochemical interactions are reflected in environmental compartments such as rocks, soils, sediments, water, biota and air. They all include radionuclides and metals, which are in the focus of this Special Issue. Their interactions and behaviour in coastal areas will reflect processes and conditions influencing them, both natural and anthropogenic.
The scope of this Special Issue is wide, and encompasses the distribution, relationships and behaviour of metals and radionuclides in various environmental compartments or different environmental matrices, their sources, interactions between metals and/or radionuclides and their interactions with other environmental parameters. Another scope is related to environmental processes involving metals and radionuclides and to the almost omnipresent anthropogenic influence. Different approaches to this topic are encouraged (e.g., statistical, modelling, experimental). The purpose of this Special Issue is to comprehensively present the current research related to metals and radionuclides in coastal areas, to obtain new insight into their geochemical behaviour and the processes involved and to collect information on the state of coastal areas under (possible) anthropogenic influence.

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.
