MetroSea is an event organized within the IMEKO N.19 Technical Committee (TC19), which is dedicated to the measurement of environmental parameters. IMEKO is a non-governmental federation of 40 Organizations individually interested in the advancement of measurement technologies. The basic targets are the promotion of the following:
- The international exchange of scientific and technical information in the field of measurement and instrumentation;
- International cooperation between scientists working in the fields of research and industry.
MetroSea aims to bring together experts working in the development of measurement methods and measurement instruments for the sea. It is therefore a conference that includes, transversely, all the scientific disciplines that operate for the sea. There is also a focus on new technologies for monitoring the marine environment, the production of instruments and measurement methods for the marine industry, ships, sensors and signal conditioning methods, and calibration methods for measuring instruments for marine applications.
MetroSea 2019 is the third meeting on measures dedicated to the sea. The second meeting, MetroSea 2018, was attended by mostly Italian researchers but also by researchers from the several European countries. The geological session involving the acquisition, processing, and interpretaion of marine geology was organized by Donatella D. Insinga, Maria Rosaria Senatore, Claudio Pellegrini, Elena Romano, Alessandra Savini, and Daniele Spatola. The plenary session of the conference was held by Henry Vallius, of the geological survey of Finland (GTK), with a presentation entitled ‘’The EMODNET Geology Project—Harmonizing Geological Maps of the European Seas’’.
All contributions submitted to MetroSea are subject to a peer review process, and acceptance is based on the evaluation of the quality, originality, and relevance of the manuscript. The accepted articles are published in the proceedings of the workshop, indexed by Scopus, and the extended versions of the articles will be submitted for publication in a Special Issue of Geosciences MDPI.
The Special Issue website can be reached at:
Manuscripts for Geosciences should be submitted online at susy.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be 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 to the Editorial Office 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. Geosciences is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 850 CHF (Swiss Francs) (Please note that for papers submitted after 30 June 2019 an APC of 1000 CHF applies). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
