ECSA 58 – EMECS 13
Estuaries and coastal seas in the Anthropocene
Structure, functions, services and management
7-11 September 2020 | Hull, UK
Welcome to 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.
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.
We invite contributions within a broad range of topics, covering the diversity of threats and opportunities facing estuarine, coastal and marine ecosystems and the people they support. For our full list of topics and special sessions please visit the website.
Abstract submission deadline: 27 March 2020
