Tsunamis in Latin American Countries
Coastal Engineering Journal Special Issue Call for Papers
Deadline: 1 June 2019
Having a similar tectonic background with Japan, Latin American countries have suffered from major tsunami disasters in the past. In recent years, many international corporation and collaborative research projects have performed between Latin American countries and Japan to share lessons of these past catastrophic events and enhance tsunami disaster management.
This Coastal Engineering Journal (CEJ) special issue will be dedicated to papers that contribute to enhance resilience to tsunami disasters with the remarkable outcomes from collaborations.
This special issue invites contributions from broad areas of tsunami research including:
- Fundamental research
- Forecast and warning technologies
- Hazard and risk studies
- Response, mitigation, and recovery
- Socio-economic impacts of past and future tsunami events in Latin American countries
All the prospective authors are invited to submit a one-page-abstract of their paper in PDF format by 1 December 2018. The abstract should include title, list of authors with affiliations and summary of the full paper within 400 words (no figures).
Please submit your abstract to special issue guest editor, Erick Mas before the deadline. The corresponding author will be notified of the abstract screening result and will be requested to submit a full paper by 1 June 2019.
Please note that all the submitted full papers go through the same review process as other CEJ papers and some papers may be rejected depending on the review results.
We look forward to receiving your excellent papers.
