Call For Papers

ECSA 55 brings together a global multi-disciplinary community of researchers and professionals to discuss and address issues of outstanding scientific importance in the science and management of estuaries and coastal seas in this rapidly changing world.

ECSA 55 will focus on learning lessons from the past, discussing the current and forecasting for the future, spanning environmental, anthropogenic and climatic impacts on estuaries and coastal seas across the globe.

ECSA 55 will be held in London on the banks of the Thames Estuary, a heavily modified, industrial megacity estuary. As with all megacity estuaries, the Thames is a valuable resource which faces competing, and often conflicting socio-economic and environmental demands. The need to balance these demands in a complex environment, whilst confronting the consequences of climate change, requires innovative multi-sectoral management approaches based on excellent and fit-for-purpose science.

Conference Topics
Abstract submissions are invited on the conference topics and should be submitted using the online submission system. Submit abstracts by: 27 March 2015.

People and coasts through time.
Biology and ecology of coastal and estuarine systems: evolution, adaptation and shifting baselines.

Interactions between biological, geochemical and physical processes: fluxes and functions.
Valuing estuaries and coasts: Shifting social, economic and cultural perspectives.
Managing challenges: Working towards resilient and sustainable coasts and estuaries.
Estuaries and coasts in the future: Prediction and adaptation.
