Aims and Scope
International Journal of Marine Science and Engineering (IJMASE) is a quarterly, peer-reviewed medium for the publication of research achievements and engineering practices in the fields of marine engineering, ocean engineering, and naval architecture as well as biological, physical and chemical oceanography. The International Journal of Marine Science and Engineering provides a forum for the discussion of current issues in marine engineering and science by publishing original, full length, refereed contributions on research and/or technical and industrial developments in this field. Review papers by leading authorities are also presented. The principal areas of interest are the following:
Science studies on analytical models, numerical computation and laboratory experiments, also results of field measurements in the categories of i) Marine Biology: ecology, behavior, benthic dynamics, biodiversity, biogeography, ecosystem functioning, evolution, phylogeny, physiology, taxonomy; ii) Marine Chemistry: organic marine hydrochemistry, inorganic marine hydrochemistry, organic marine geochemistry, inorganic marine geochemistry, marine organic pollution, marine inorganic pollution, marine toxicology; and iii) Marine Physics: general circulation model development, ocean circulation and climate, pollution dispersion models, tidal currents, tsunami and hurricane generated seas, hydrogeology.
Engineering studies on analytical models, numerical computation and laboratory experiments, also results of field measurements and case studies of industry projects. This includes i) Coastal Engineering: waves and currents, sediment transport and morphodynamics, structures and facilities, shore protection, prevention or mitigation of coastal disasters, marine power engineering; ii) Offshore Engineering: waves and currents, structures and facilities, and underwater acoustical engineering; iii) Naval Architecture: ship design, shipbuilding, ship hydrodynamics and propulsion, underwater vehicles, modern crafts and high speed vehicles.
