L&O:F&E (ISSN 2157-3689) published interdisciplinary papers that relate fluid dynamics and transport properties to biological, chemical, and geological processes that occur in aquatic/ aqueous environments. The journal includes papers covering research in any aspect of limnology and oceanography where advection and/or diffusion or the mechanics of the medium drive biological, chemical, or geological processes from molecular to global scales. Published papers focus on a variety of approaches, including modeling, theory, and empiricism. The journal focused on transport phenomena and their environmental implications, from large-scale currents to organism-induced motions and molecular-level transfers. The interactions of physics with biology, chemistry, or geology, or any combination of these are featured in L&O:F&E papers.
The final issue of Limnology and Oceanography: Fluids and Environments was published in December 2014. All four volumes are now hosted in perpetual open access on Wiley Online Library.
