Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The coastal zone is a dynamic and changing environment. It hosts various activities, but at the same time, it is an area of unique natural importance, with significant natural habitats. Due to their abundant resources, coasts experience denser population concentrations compared to inland regions, leading to elevated rates of population growth and urbanization. At the same time, natural processes over larger time scales have shaped the current coastal landscape. Today, the coastal zone faces different challenges deriving from climate change, human activities, and changes in sediment supply. To preserve and protect these valuable coastal environments, different approaches are needed. This Special Issue welcomes studies that deal with the abovementioned topics. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following areas:

  • Coastal erosion;
  • Coastal hazards;
  • Human impacts on the coastal zone;
  • Climate change and coastal zone;
  • Sea level rise impacts;
  • Protection measures for the coastal zone;
  • Monitoring techniques in the coastal zone;
  • Innovative adaptation approaches;
  • Nature-based solutions for the coastal zone.
