Call for abstracts: Estuaries and coastal seas in the Anthropocene

ECSA’s next major symposium, ECSA 58 - EMECS 13: Estuaries and coastal seas in the Anthropocene – Structure, functions, services and management, which will take place from the 7-11 September 2020 in Hull, UK.

[Translate to english:] Special session The Wadden Sea ecosystem: Human impacts, management concepts and challenges for the future

The structure and functioning of our estuaries and seas are shifting within what is now termed the Anthropocene due to diverse drivers and pressures from local to global scales. The resulting threats to the natural and human features of these systems are often all too apparent, yet such changes can also present new opportunities.

The challenge is to harness these opportunities through new ways of thinking, scientific developments, innovative technology and more effective integration of science and management.

ECSA 58 & EMECS 13 brings together a global multi-disciplinary community of researchers, educators and practitioners to address issues of outstanding importance in the science (both natural and social) and management of estuaries and coastal seas in this rapidly changing world.

There will be a session about the Wadden Sea: The Wadden Sea ecosystem: Human impacts, management concepts and challenges for the future co-organised by Katja Philippart.

Abstract submission deadline is 27 March 2020.
