    Special Issue Description

    Dear Collegues,

    Different kinds of marine contaminants exist. If exposed for a long enough time, they become poisonous to marine life.
    If contaminants like floating garbage, oil spills, and microplastics are allowed in place, they can be fatal to aquatic life. The source, sink, and destiny of pollutants must all be determined before deciding on the type of treatment or prevention to be used.
    The contaminants in water can be found using a variety of detection techniques. The use of sensors, remote sensing, Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, thermal analysis, spectroscopy, and simulation models are some of the methods they employ. The target analyte in water can be found using any of these tools.
    According to their physical and chemical properties, contaminants can be identified. The presence of organic and inorganic materials in the chosen target is distinguished using these methods.
    Pollutant identification can have both beneficial and negative effects, particularly in chemical analyses. Physical and chemical analyses are currently combined and applied globally. Pollutant analysis for larger areas uses cutting-edge technologies like remote sensing and simulation models.
    It is necessary to create new techniques and enhance existing ones to speed up the identification process for environmental samples.

    Manuscript Submission information

    Manuscripts should be submitted online by registering and logging in to this link. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed.
    Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent on email address:[email protected] 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page.
