Welcome to the new and relaunched edition of the Journal of Marine Environmental Engineering.
As you can see, we have retooled the editorial board with a new slate, to represent the varied expertise the journal covers, truly from an international perspective. The journal will continue to focus on theoretical and applied research, as well as practical topics related to the marine environment, specifically, but not limited to, modeling of coastal and ocean systems, nearshore and offshore structures, field measurements of coastal processes, coastal and port engineering, aquatic pollution and environmental restoration, habitat enhancement or creation, fisheries management, and renewable energy. Significant advances have been made in these and related topics in recent years – both in the theoretical and practical applications areas – and the journal will continue to serve as a media for publishing such information.
This relaunch issue highlights three papers of varied intrigue – a case study of reactive media amended sand capping as a tool to restore a legacy contaminated Lake in upstate New York (USA); reporting of observations of the influence of wave and current patterns on sediment dynamics in Baisha Bay (China); and reporting on theoretical research conducted at Delft (Netherlands) on slurry transport head loss and velocity framework for marine applications.
With the renewed energy from the new board, we will be soliciting specific issues focusing on themes that are of interest to our global audience, in the years to come. We hope that you will continue to contribute to the Journal, thus furthering the study and dissemination of knowledge in marine environmental engineering, a field we all love.
