Exploring the depths: Advancing seabed research in marine and environment

Xianfeng Wang


Dear readers of and contributors to Marine and Environment,

It is with great pleasure that we present the inaugural issue of Marine and Environment for the year, featuring a captivating Section Collection on “Studies of the Seabed”. This collection showcases the remarkable progress made in understanding the dynamic nature of the seabed and the vital role it plays in marine ecosystems. These studies explore various aspects of the seabed’s behavior and response to natural and human-induced disturbances, such as earthquakes, landslides, waves, currents, sediment transport, erosion, deposition, mining, drilling, anchoring, cable laying, and offshore structures[1,2]. As the editorial team, we are thrilled to present a compilation of cutting-edge research articles that delve into the intriguing world of seabed mechanics and dynamics, which has the potential to shape our future in profound ways.
