Coastal areas are great places to live, work, and play. Unfortunately, these areas are feeling the effects of changing air and water temperature, rising sea levels, changes in the amount of rainfall, increased flooding, and more severe storms. Thus, climate change is already unavoidably affecting the climate–ocean system. As a consequence of climate change, global coastal communities are increasingly at risk from coastal hazards, such as rising sea levels and increased storm intensity. Indeed, these are the type of major climate impact on coastal areas that will require significant intervention, alongside other phenomena such as drought. This Special Issue focuses on the relationship between coastal hazards and climate change, aiming to promote the coastal vulnerability assessments with respect to present and predicted climate change scenarios. There is no geographical remit for the submissions. Original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:
- The changes in storm surges, wave, mean sea level, marine heatwave, extreme wind, precipitation, floods and other hazards in the coastal areas;
- The effect of climate changes on the coastal hazards;
- The variations and changes of compound extreme events in the coastal areas;
- Detection and attribution of changes in extremes in the coastal areas;
- Costal vulnerability and hazards management;
- Assessment, adaption, and mitigation of coastal hazards;
- Method and dataset for the coastal hazards;
- Coastal erosion and coastline changes
- The projection of coastal hazards from IPCC6.

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. Atmosphere 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 2400 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.
