Special Issue in Journal of Marine Science and Engineering: Applied Turbulence in Coastal Sciences: From Physical to Biogeochemistry Processes
Waves and currents are a fundamental feature of the coastal area hydrodynamics and are mainly driven by physical forcing, such as tides, wind stress and river flow. They generate complex circulation patterns along the coast, both in the alongshore and cross-shore directions, influencing or determining sediment transport and the distribution of water parameters, such as temperature and salinity. Currents and waves play an important role in coastal morphodynamics, influence the dispersion of nutrients and pollutants in coastal seas and the biogeochemistry of the water column ecosystem and constitutes an important issue to better predict the future of coastal areas and ecosystems behaviour under climate stress.
This Special Issue is aimed at building synergies between fundamental and applied approaches on understanding waves and currents with special emphasis on the coastal dynamics and environmental impacts. Papers are welcome dealing with theoretical, modeling and applied approaches on coastal circulation under waves, tides and currents, bottom boundary layer hydrodynamics and sediment transport, turbulence, state-of-the-art modeling tools as well as the impact of the climate changes on the morphodynamics and the environmental ecosystem.
This Special Issue covers the following topics:
- State-of-the-art of numerical models of coastal waters hydrodynamics
- Modelling coastal hydrodynamic and sediment transport under wave tides and currents
- Turbulence and bottom boundary layer hydrodynamics
- Modeling biogeochemistry interactions in coastal areas

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.
