Marine transport processes describe the movement of matter in the ocean from one place to another and across any scale from microscopic to global. This special feature examines important transport processes in the marine environment with particular emphasis on anthropogenic components that have become a part of these processes as well as relevant impacts that may arise from such human alterations. The goal of this issue is to raise attention towards studying marine transport process with a holistic eye by including geological, physico-chemical, biological and socio-economic knowledge.
