Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Much of the phenomena associated with changes in the dynamics of the coupled ocean-atmosphere system can be regarded as transitions between meta-stable states. While the linear response to external factors, such as radiative forcing, has been the focus of considerable investigation in the climate community, the mechanisms responsible for decadal and longer timescale variability are not well understood. This Special Issue will solicit papers from leading researchers in the field to give an overview of the theory, simulation, and methods for detection and attribution of metastability in the climate system. The issue will focus in particular on the role of stochastic forcing on low frequency variability.

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Marine Science and Engineering is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 300 CHF (Swiss Francs). English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
