Journal of Port and Ocean Engineering (JPOE)
About a century ago no one would have heard about a ocean engineer, but today it is a profession which is as established as any other famous ones. Over the last 100 years, engineering as a field of study has developed and diversified far beyond what could have been imagined prior to this period. Not only this, it has also branched out into various specialised fields that have achieved great progress. Most of these new fields are aligned to any of the basic engineering branches like mechanical, electrical, civil, electronics, computers etc and have something or the other incorporated from them. One such branch is called marine engineering. Marine engineering is the branch of study that deals with the design, development, production and maintenance of the equipments used at sea and on board sea vessels like boats, ships etc. As a matter of fact, it is quite a vast field and it also has many sister arenas like naval architecture and nautical science.
Journal of Port and Ocean Engineering (JPOE) disseminates to the profession engineering and scientific advances made in the COPRI disciplines. The journal is a strong forum for civil engineering disciplines related to ocean, coastal and riverine waters as well as the interaction of these waters and the adjacent built and natural environments. This broad scope makes the Journal an ideal choice for the publication and dissemination of archival contributions dealing with important related topics. Topics include dredging, floods, sediment transport, tides, wind waves and storm surge, tsunamis, climate change, rising sea level, extreme weather events and other hazards that affect shorelines, waterways, estuaries, and ports and harbors, as well as efforts to mitigate the impact of such hazards. Of equal interest is the development and operation of offshore facilities and ocean resource utilization, such as renewable energy and ocean mining. Types of publications include original journal articles, comprehensive review articles, short technical notes, case studies of special interest to the readership, book reviews, and special issues on selected topics.
