Due to global warming and a rising sea level, the frequency of extreme marine environments is increasing. It has brought new problems and challenges to the safety of coastal and offshore structures and has also promoted the development of numerous novel ocean engineering technologies. This Special Issue aims to create a forum for both academia and industry to exchange the most recent achievements and progresses in tackling the emerging challenges in ocean engineering and the related marine environmental impacts. Original submissions reporting extreme marine environments, new marine renewable energy development, new marine structures, analysis methods and findings regarding all aspects of ocean engineering and related marine environments are welcome. Topics of interest in this Special Issue include, but are not limited to:
- Coastal engineering;
- Marine renewable energy;
- Offshore engineering;
- Deep-sea engineering;
- Polar engineering;
- Innovative marine structural design;
- Innovative analysis technology for ocean engineering;
- Extreme marine environments and their impacts;
- Wave–structure interaction/soil (sand)–structure interaction;
- Coastal zone disaster prevention and mitigation;
- Reliability and survivability of marine structures;
- Development of numerical tools for ocean engineering;
- Development of model testing technology.

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. Water is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
