About this Research Topic

Manuscript Submission Deadline 22 November 2022

Environmental research is inherently complex since it is only relevant if it addresses both facts of nature and facts of society. However, the study of the interface between these two facts inevitably involves interdisciplinary collaboration. One of the challenges to be met by environmental researchers is to properly coordinate this interdisciplinarity in order to produce effective knowledge for understanding the components of the ecosystem.

Any interdisciplinary system is essentially complex to apprehend. Indeed, the diversity of spatiotemporal scales inherent in each compartment of the system makes it very difficult (even impossible) to study the interactions between them. To circumvent these difficulties, the modelling of these systems proves to be relevant to acquire certain knowledge necessary to approach the studies of these interactions. But this modelling can also benefit from the spectacular advances in the means of calculation, and new technologies such as artificial intelligence, big data, digital twins and others. Any contribution concerning the modelling (in the large sense of the word) of environmental systems is therefore welcome in this Research Topic.

Numerical modelling and simulation of environmental systems are the research themes of several researchers around the globe. These themes have been massively developed by benefiting from financial support through national and international programs and in particular after the announcements by the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) about the catastrophic scenarios that climate change would cause. This collection is an opportunity to draw up the state of the art on advances in research in all disciplines related to the environment. It also aims to be the platform for exchanges between all researchers around the world concerned about the future of our environment. This Research Topic is also an opportunity to bring out new ideas that will be taken up by future researchers in the hope of limiting the effects of climate change.

We want this Research Topic to be a space for exchanges between researchers from all disciplines related to the environment. Likewise, we believe it will provide a synthesis of recent research work undertaken across the globe. Therefore, this space is open to any type of contribution proposing innovative solutions such as reviews, research articles and technical notes. Contributions dealing with the applications of the following disciplines to the environment (non-exhaustive list) are welcome: fluid mechanics, wave propagation, free surface flow, acoustics, fluid-structure interactions, solid mechanics, soil mechanics, geo-mechanics, sediment transport, maritime and river navigation, mobility, renewable energy, multiphase flows, groundwater flows, numerical optimization, inverse problems, artificial intelligence, digital twins, and many others.

Keywords: Marine system, Porous media, Coastal area, Fluvial navigation, Water quality, Wave energy, Biomaterials, Vibro-acoustic, Ecosystem, Wind turbine, Renewable energy


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
