Coastal Hazards and Risks due to Tropical Cyclones

Prevention and mitigation of coastal disasters is one of most essential tasks of coastal engineers. Coastal Engineering Journal has published a number of articles which focus on the post-disaster survey of catastrophic events induced by intensive tropical cyclones as listed below. An upcoming special issue focuses on further analysis and investigations of recent events to deepen understanding of these coastal hazards and risks, and to improve disaster prevention and mitigation measures. Potential topics of articles include, but are not limited to: (i) Analysis and investigations of the physical mechanisms and characteristics of disasters; (ii) Numerical modeling of the recent disasters; (iii) Comparative studies of recent disasters; (iv) Investigations of the impact of global warming; and (v) Lessons learned from these events with respect to disaster prevention and mitigation strategies.

Prospective authors are invited to submit a one-page-abstract of their paper in PDF format by October 1st, 2020 to [email protected]. The abstract should include the title, a list of authors with affiliations, and summary of the full paper within 400 words (no figures). The corresponding author will be notified of the results of abstract screening and will be requested to submit a full paper by May 1st, 2021.

Please note that all the submitted full papers go through the same review process as other CEJ papers and some papers may be declined depending on the review results. An accepted full paper will be published online immediately after acceptance, and then be listed as one of articles of the special issue in January 2022. We look forward to receiving your excellent papers.
