Special issue on the Wadden Sea of the journal Ocean and Coastal Management

In December 2010 the trilateral scientific symposium ‘Towards a trilateral research agenda’ was organised by the Waddenacademie and several international partners. The symposium has led to the publication of a special issue on the Wadden Sea of the scientific journal ‘Ocean and Coastal Management’. In this issue research is published in the domains Geosciences, Climate and Water, Ecology and Heritage, Society and Tourism. Special attention is given to interdisciplinary research and to the improvement of the science-policy interface in the Wadden Sea Region. The special is available at sciencedirect. You can order a hard copy of this special by sending an email to the Waddenacademie.  

You can order a specific article as a pdf by sending an email to the Waddenacademie.
