I would like to announce a JMSE Special Issue on the modeling of coastal hazards and risks, that is applicable to Arctic settings. Arctic coastal hazards include erosion, flooding, permafrost thaw, and salinity intrusion. The hazards pose risks and consequently costs on coastal communities and government agencies, and the hazards and risks are expected to intensify in coming decades due to climate change. Communities and agencies mitigate the hazards and risks in various ways. For example, to mitigate flooding of roads, funds may be expended to raise the roads. The ability to mitigate the hazards and risks constitutes resilience. In this issue, we seek approaches to defining coastal hazards and risks and to designing counter-measures to mitigate those risks and achieve resilience. Addressing these issues requires interdisciplinary approaches including natural and social sciences and engineering and requires the involvement of local communities. The Special Issue aims to define the state of knowledge of Arctic coastal hazards and risks and identify knowledge gaps that prevent successful coastal adaptation to climate change.

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.
