In collaboration with the journal *Frontiers in Marine Science*, we are
inviting manuscripts from a across disciplines to contribute to a Research
Topic that focuses on the issue of

*Flooding on Coral Reef-lined Coasts: Current State of Knowledge and Future

This topic focuses on advancements in understanding and predicting local
sea levels, offshore wave climates, wave transformation and water levels
across reefs, and linkages between coral reefs, sediment production, and
island/shoreline dynamics. Summaries of current local or regional-scale
studies, including modeling exercises, are encouraged, especially if they
evaluate responses to changes in sea level or the impact on infrastructure,
habitats, agriculture, freshwater availability, etc.

You can find out more about the Research Topic as well as submit an
abstract and manuscript online here:
