Anthropocene Coasts

Anthropocene Coasts, an open access journal, publishes multidisciplinary research that aims to understand and predict the effects of human activities, including climate change, on estuarine and coastal regions. Anthropocene Coasts publishes original research articles, reviews (and overviews), topical communications, notes and letters.

The Anthropocene is the period during which human activities have had a marked, and often decisive, environmental impact on the Earth, whilst Coasts embraces all aspects of the land–sea interface.

Anthropocene Coasts therefore seeks to identify and document the influence of human activities on contemporary coastal processes (physical, biological, and chemical processes across the land–sea interface) and the implications for other aspects of these systems including social, economic, and legal considerations.

Special Collection Call for Papers:
Challenge and Resolution to the Threatened Anthropocene Coast

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: SEPTEMBER 1, 2022

Spacial Heterogeneity of land use along the coast of the Yangtze River Delta and implications for exposure assessment to erosion hazard.

Xiaoting Wang, Weiguo Zhang, Jie Yin, Jun Wang, Jianping Wu & Nina S. N. Lam

Coastal erosion is widespread under conditions of changing hydrodynamics and diminishing sediment supply, and exposure assessment to erosion hazard has received increasing attention. In this study, we explore the impact of spatial heterogeneity of land use within administrative units on exposure assessment of land use value to erosional hazard.

Modelling morphodynamic responses of a natural embayed beach to Typhoon Lekima encountering different tide types

Abstract Recent developments in process-based coastal area models such as XBeach provide new opportunities to predict coastal responses to primary forcing mechanisms such as storm hydrodynamic by using 2DH grids. However, due to the lack of measured data, there are few application scenarios of the models. Therefore, more measurement and research are needed. In this […]

Numerical investigation of the wave interaction with flexible vegetation: model setup and validation for a single stem study case

Abstract Aquatic flexible vegetation plays a very important role in ecosystem, and has been widely used in river or coastal bank revetment. Flexible vegetation contributes to wave attenuation and soil retention. In this study, a fluid-structure bidirectional coupled numerical model (FSC model) was developed based on the codes in-house software [email protected] to study the interaction between […]

Human utilization of mega-deltas: the importance of tidally modulated ground surface elevation

Abstract Human development of mega-deltas is influenced by the elevation of delta ground surface. The elevation, modulated by the largest tidal range, influences the inundation pattern during storm surges, or the degree of risk in the presence of a sea dyke. However, the tidal modulation may be interrupted by nature or human induced subsidence or […]
