Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Although coastal erosion has been an important research topic for a long time, it is still difficult to provide a clear solution. Moreover, sea level rise due to climate change increases the frequency of high wave invasion, increasing the likelihood of large-scale coastal topographic changes and coastal erosion. In addition, climate change is becoming more severe and its impact on coastal ecosystems is increasing, so it is necessary to prepare for this. 

In this Special Issue, various areas related to beach deformation and coastal erosion are discussed as major topics in the face of climate change, as well as the impact of climate change on the coast, including natural disasters, damage prediction, coastal management and conservation measures. We would like to cover the following broad topics:

  • Coastal response and resilience to climate change;
  • Modeling of coupled systems that address coastal erosion, inundation and/or sea level rise;
  • Nowcast/forecast modeling systems that can capture coastal erosion, inundation and/or sea level rise;
  • Wave and sediment transport modeling to evaluate coastal erosion issues;
  • Effects of sea level rise on the resilience of coastal zones;
  • Water quality issues that arise due to coastal erosion or sea level rise in the coastal transition zone;
  • Machine learning or data assimilation that incorporates coastal sedimentation;
  • Coastal erosion and countermeasures.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Journal of Marine Science and Engineering 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 2600 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.
