From Coastal Engineering to Integrated Coastal Zone Management
We invite all researchers who wish to share research regarding models and infrastructures inside coastal engineering, as well as reflections on integrated coastal zone management, coastal uses, and conflicts due to different activities, to submit manuscripts by 30 November 2022. The Editors welcome manuscripts with confirmed data series and hypotheses. This is an opportunity for the scientific community, Ph.D. students, and young magister researchers to demonstrate the ability to act in a timely way to challenging scientific research, providing relevant contributions according to environmental, social, and economic dimensions of sustainable development in coastal and marine zones. This special edition is supported by the Cathedra Stephen Olsen and the Iberoamerican Network for Beach Management and Certification (www.proplayas.org).
We encourage authors to submit articles in the following main concern areas:
- Infrastructures and models inside coastal engineering (study cases including good practices on coastal urbanism, building waterfront, typologies of the physical environment built on the beach front, hard infrastructures to stop coastal erosion, among others).
- New methodologies for improving integrated coastal zone management.
- Research on beach users’ typologies.
- Beach users’ preferences and the most relevant factors to choose a beach destination, i.e., the "Big Five" (beach facilities, no litter, safety, scenery, and water quality).
- Beach-carrying capacity.
- Coastal water pollution and bathing characteristics.
- Coastal landscape characterization and management.
- Integrated river basin and coastal zone management.
- Coastal sensitivity/vulnerability.
- Coastal characterization and adaptation strategies.
- Coastal migration index or coastal vulnerability index to face sea-level rise (indexes used by decision makers to face the current climate change scenario).
- Research on coastal ecosystems, such as mangroves, coastal lagoons and dunes.
- Environmental sensitivity maps to limit the impacts of beach oiling.
