Journal of Marine Science is a peer-reviewed, open-access academic journal specializing in the field of marine science research. Even after thousands of years, scientists have yet to fully uncover the mysteries of the world’s water bodies. The journal is dedicated to the presentation of the discoveries and insights in marine science research.

The scope of the Journal of Marine Science includes, but is not limited to:

  • Marine ecosystem
  • Nearshore and ocean circulation
  • Ocean floor dynamics
  • Marine geology
  • Chemical oceanography
  • Physical oceanography
  • Operational oceanography
  • Met-ocean data measurements and analysis
  • Climate change effects in marine and coastal environment

Abstract: The use of Digital Shoreline Analysis System was used to determine shoreline changes in Ikoli River, Yenagoa, Bayelsa State. Shoreline data were extracted from satellite imagery over thirty years (1991-2021). The basis of this study is to use Digital Shoreline Analysis System to determine erosion and accretion areas. The result reveals that the average er...

Abstract: The resistance performance and motion stability of deep sea remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) subjected to underwater motion conditions are studied on the basis of the unsteady Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes method combined with the six-degree-of-freedom equation of motion to quickly and accurately predict them. In the modeling process, we consider the c...

Abstract: Agar is an essential polysaccharide that has been utilized in numerous fields. Many kinds of literature have been published regarding agarolytic microorganisms’ isolation and agarases biochemical studies. In this search, a local marine agarolytic bacterium associated with marine alga Ulva lactuca surface was isolated and identified as Pseudoa...

Abstract: Any seafarer or mariner that uses the sea knows that navigation without correct charts is impossible and hazardous because nautical charts are the most essential and indispensable tools for vessels to sail safely at sea. For vessels to safely sail at sea, the seas and the oceans ought to be charted and this falls within the domain of hydrography. However,...



Congratulations to Dr. M. Pilar Cabezas on her appointment as the Associate Editor of Journal of Marine Science


Currently, Dr. M. Pilar Cabezas is a post-Doc researcher at the University of Porto, hired under the project “SARDINOMICS – Development of molecular tools to improve knowledge and management of Sardine stocks”, where I am using Next Generation Sequencing to improve knowledge and management of sardine stocks.
Her main research interest is to obtain a more comprehensive knowledge on marine biodiversity and to investigate the impact that cryptic species and biological invasions may have on our perception about it.
With the joint efforts of the entire editorial team, Journal of Marine Science will soon become an excellent journal in the field of marine science.
