Advances in Environmental and Engineering Research (AEER) is an international peer-reviewed Open Access journal published quarterly online by LIDSEN Publishing Inc. This periodical is devoted to publishing high-quality peer-reviewed papers that describe the most significant and cutting-edge research in all areas of environmental science and engineering. Work at any scale, from molecular biology through to ecology, is welcomed.

Main research areas include (but are not limited to):

  • Atmospheric pollutants
  • Air pollution control engineering
  • Climate change
  • Ecological and human risk assessment
  • Environmental management and policy
  • Environmental impact and risk assessment
  • Environmental microbiology
  • Ecosystem services, biodiversity and natural capital
  • Environmental economics
  • Control and monitoring of pollutants
  • Remediation of polluted soils and water
  • Fate and transport of contaminants
  • Water and wastewater treatment engineering
  • Solid waste treatment

Advances in Environmental and Engineering Research publishes a variety of article types (Original Research, Review, Communication, Opinion, Comment, Conference Report, Technical Note, Book Review, etc.). We encourage authors to be succinct; however, authors should present their results in as much detail as necessary. Reviewers are expected to emphasize scientific rigor and reproducibility.

Some Value-Added Met-Ocean Products to the RAMMB’s TC Surface Analysis for Marine Meteorological Applications

Received: 31 August 2023;  Published: 20 December 2023;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2304054


In the realm of air-sea interaction and marine meteorology, during a tropical cyclone (TC) worldwide since 2006, the Regional and Mesoscale Meteorological Branch (RAMMB) has issued surface wind analysis. Based on this TC’s isotach (line of equal wind speed) analysis, in this paper, much more meteorological-oceanograp [...]

Wave Age and Steepness Relation in Growing Wind Seas: A Case Study during Hurricane Matthew in 2016

Received: 12 March 2023;  Published: 20 June 2023;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2302037


For wind-wave interaction studies, from the literature, two criteria for the wind sea are used: one is the wave age and the other wave steepness. Analysis of pertinent datasets from a data buoy near the passage of Hurricane Matthew in 2016 indicates that = -15 + 1.3. Here [...]

The Dynamics of the Oceanic Air-Sea Boundary Layer

Received: 13 November 2022;  Published: 05 February 2023;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2301018


This paper presents a model for the similarity structure of the velocity profiles in air and water in the wave boundary layer, which provides predictions in terms of two parameters, F and R, of all its important properties, including the Charnock parameter, the surface drift velocity and the condition for the cancellation of the [...]

Some Aspects of Marine Meteorology and Air-Sea-Wetland-River Interactions During Hurricane Ida (2021)

Received: 28 August 2022;  Published: 21 October 2022;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2204042


In August 2021 Hurricane Ida devastated southeast Louisiana. On the basis of numerous pertinent meteorological-oceanographic (met-ocean) information including datasets and graphics as supplied by various public agencies, several unique topics related to marine meteorology and air-sea-land interactions are investigated. It is found that a newl [...]

Wind-Stress Variations from Deep to Shallow Water during Hurricanes for Air-Sea-Land Interaction Applications

Received: 27 December 2021;  Published: 14 February 2022;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2201006


In September 2020 Hurricane Sally impacted two National Data Buoy Center ( buoys near its track: 42040 in the deep water and 42012 in the shallow. Using pertinent air-sea interaction [...]
