Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Coastal and Offshore structures and applications must be designed to endure the harsh marine environment from multiple points of view. Either due to the extreme loading caused by waves and oceanic currents or related to marine phenomena such as corrosion and severe scour occurrence, among other aspects, applications in marine environmental conditions need to be simultaneously safe and efficient. Based on the design, installation and maintenance operations for these cases, properly considering the effects of extreme sea states is crucial. This Special Issue covers a broad set of contributions focused on methodologies to predict extreme sea states and other environmental conditions at sea, as well as research performed on the analysis, design, monitoring and behavior of coastal and offshore structures, energy harvesting devices, defense infrastructures, nature-based solutions, among others. From physical to numerical studies and in situ applications, all contributions to the importance of extreme sea states for maritime engineering are welcome in this Special Issue.

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.
