We are pleased to announce an upcoming special issue of the Coastal Engineering Journal entitled "Interdisciplinary Exploration of Coastal Morphodynamics" and invite you to submit a manuscript for publication.

 

Coastal morphodynamics not only constitutes a basis for coastal engineering but also is highly relevant to diverse disciplines, such as geology, geomorphology, geophysics, ecology, agriculture, and archaeology. For example, long-term accumulations of coastal sediments have been subject to a range of analyses as archives of past coastal environments and/or responses to extraordinary events, including earthquakes, tsunamis, and storm surges, and as analogues of hydrocarbon reservoirs. Coasts also provide habitats for diverse faunas and floras, which grow and evolve in interactions with coastal morphodynamics. Outcomes from different disciplines are thus integrated to potentially provide valuable insights into coastal morphodynamics that are not achieved solely by conventional approaches of coastal engineering. In this special issue, we are interested in interdisciplinary contributions to understanding of coastal morphodynamics that are explicitly or potentially beneficial to coastal engineering. Such contributions may include but are not limited to research on the long-term evolution of coastal systems, geoscientific characterization of sediment provenance and transport, and interaction of coastal biology with morphodynamics. Surveys with recent technological advances in relevant disciplines and their reviews are particularly welcome. We strongly encourage contributions from students and historically underrepresented groups in all relevant disciplines.
