The interplay between hydraulics, sediment transport, and morphology defines our coastal systems. In recent history, these systems have been increasingly modified by anthropogenic impacts through shoreward migration as well as active coastal engineering. Consequently, in many places around the world, the coast is also crucial for coastal safety. The latter becomes increasingly important in the view of expected climate change impacts: sea level rise, more extreme river discharges and changes in wind climate. In this Special Issue, we welcome studies on the processes in the coastal zone as well as studies on coastal safety in our changing world. Such coastal safety contributions can address nature-based solutions (e.g., vegetation, nourishments) as well as engineered constructions (e.g., dikes), and the combination of both. The studies can cover field observations and remote sensing, results of laboratory experiments, or numerical modeling. Contributions addressing the impacts of and possible adaptations to climate change are especially welcome.

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. 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.
