Our near shore seas and estuaries in the North East Atlantic have been transformed by human activity with significant losses of key habitats and the services they once provided. We have the capability to reverse some of these changes and there is growing interest in, and examples of, habitat restoration.
The AMSN 2019 conference theme ‘Wetlands of the Future’ directs our focus to the response of wetlands to global change, the continuing heavy losses of wetlands globally, and recent conservation and restoration efforts. We also address the significant role wetlands play in the mitigation of climate change and sea level rise impacts, such as through reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and through...Read more about this event
Beach erosion is the result of a deficit in the coastal sediment budget. To manage this process coastal sediment stock assessment is crucial, even more under the Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) framework.
Being hard to increase sediment input from the river system, which is actually reducing due to soil erosion control, flood reduction and dams construction, a knowledge based...Read full article
Global environmental changes nowadays affect natural systems at unprecedented rates and scales. Estuaries and coastal systems are particularly affected as transition environments concentrating multiple anthropogenic and climate influences. Scientific results from monitoring programmes around the globe therefore need to be gathered and compared to identify long-term trends and explore spatial...Read more about this event
