Anthropocene Coasts: The Emerging Role of Data-Driven Science at the Coast

Do your data dive into coastal processes? Anthropocene Coasts calls for Papers: The Emerging Role of Data-Driven Science at the Coast


Submission deadline: 31 December 2020

Article Processing Charges waived on manuscripts submitted by the deadline.

A growing library of open data and free open-source analysis tools enables coastal scientists to investigate a range of societally relevant questions about coastal environments. Anthropocene Coasts invites the Future Earth Coast network to share their research in a new collection exploring how data-driven research and large coastal-focused data sets are being used to improve our understanding of coastal system dynamics and social, economic, and management dimensions of coastal environments.

Submissions can be focused on physical or numerical modeling or be observational in nature but should contain an aspect that is focused on data-driven or data-intensive research. For example, a modelling study could have a machine learning component parameterized from data, a remote sensing study could analyze a large catalog of observations, and a governmental data set could be analyzed to understand damages from extreme events. While we are obviously interested in the use of cutting-edge techniques, we accept contributions that put data at the core of the study, possibly integrating multi-sourced and multi-purpose datasets.
