Please consider submitting an abstract for the Coastal response to a changing climate session at the Estuarine & Coastal Sciences Association meeting to be held inPerth, Western Australia, 3-6 September, 2018. We invite abstracts covering improved understanding of coastal morphodynamics, observed coastal response to climate changes/events, as well as efforts to predict the likely evolution of the coastline to changes in any aspect of the climate, including waves, sea levels, sediment delivery, and coastal-estuary coupling.

Conference Topics:

We invite contributions within the following broad topics, covering the diversity of threats and opportunities facing estuarine, coastal and marine ecosystems and the people they support.

1. Environment

a. Land - ocean linkages

b. Coastal morphodynamics and sediment transport

c. Oceanography and physical-biological coupling

d. Biogeochemistry, element cycling and greenhouse gas dynamics

e. Coastal wetland vulnerability: Climate change, anthropogenic pressures, and extreme events

f. Similarities, stressors and sustainability of southern hemisphere estuaries on wave-dominated coasts

g. Changing sea levels and changing tides

h. Forecasting physical-biological processes: advances in monitoring, modeling and validation

i. Acid sulfate soils in coastal ecosystems: Impact of anthropogenic and natural activities

j. Coastal response to a changing climate

k. Greenhouse gasses: Production, uptake, and emission

2. Biodiversity

a. Genetic diversity and adaptation

b. Population dynamics

c. Connectivity (e.g. energy, genes, habitats and disease)

d. Ecosystem structure and function

e. Cyanobacteria and harmful algal blooms in coastal systems

f. Incorporating an understanding of resilience into the management, conservation and restoration of benthic primary producer habitats

g. Omics advances in estuarine research and applications

h. Trait-based approaches for understanding ecosystem functioning in a changing world

i. Impacts of Marine Noise on ocean biodiversity

j. Paleoecology: A tool for informed management of estuarine and coastal ecosystems

3. People and management

a. Sustainable natural resource exploitation

b. Marine Protected Areas

c. Aquaculture

d. Societal values

f. Ecosystem service delivery

g. Coastal challenges for Small Island Developing States (SIDS)

h. Destination Ocean: Challenges of global tourism to ocean and coasts

i. Policies for improvement of artisanal fisheries in developing countries    

j. Assessing and valuing our environment: Challenging the ecosystem service approach

k. Estuarine ecology, fishery resources, threats and solutions towards a sustainable management

4. Integration

a. Socio-ecological dynamics, resilience and regime shifts

b. Integrated management – cumulative risk assessment and tradeoffs

c. Case studies of eco-engineering and ecosystem restoration

d. Effective governance – regional to international scales

e. Integrated observing systems and modelling

f. Grey to green nature-based coastal protection

g. Estuaries in the 21st Century – a new paradigm

h. Assessing cumulative impacts and risks to marine ecosystem values

i. The Great Barrier Reef - A rapidly changing and degrading ecosystem: The need for urgent management and current opportunities

j. Mangrove restoration: reality or utopia

k. Balancing good marine health status and blue growth

l. Novel approaches to monitoring estuaries, coastal and shelf waters

m. Communicating the risk of coastal degradation under the Climate Change scenario: Challenges and opportunities

n. Taking Social Sustainability to the Sea: How to Strengthen the Social Dimension of Coastal and Marine Governance

o. Matching scales and optimizing designs: from observational to modelling and assessing approaches for understanding estuarine and coastal system dynamics

p. Applied solutions for sustainable and resilient estuaries and coasts

q. Keeping major urban estuaries, ports and harbours viable

r. Modelling threats to coastal systems and restoration options
