Research and Management of Eutrophication in Coastal Ecosystems

About this Research Topic

Coastal eutrophication has been and remains an important issue for the scientific community and ecosystem management. Despite many efforts to mitigate coastal eutrophication, the problems associated with eutrophication are still far from being solved. Under the Research Topic “Research and Management of Eutrophication in Coastal Ecosystems” we are aiming to discuss:

1. Presentation and discussion of existing knowledge and recent scientific results in relation to specific eutrophication issues, e.g.: i) Causative factors and direct and indirect effects of eutrophication, ii) climate and physical control on the biogeochemical dynamics and eutrophication status of the coastal zone, and iii) effects of eutrophication of biodiversity, food webs and ecosystem services.
2. Monitoring, modelling and assessment of eutrophication.
3. Presentation and discussion of evidence-based or ecosystem-based nutrient management strategies and polices.
4. Next steps: From eutrophication to oligotrophication in a changing climate.

We encourage interdisciplinary contributions and those tackling the following crosscutting topics: (a) Direct and indirect effects of nutrient enrichment in relation to changes in nutrient load and climate, (b) Recent developments in relation to modelling and multi-metric indicator-based assessment tools and (c) Nutrient management strategies and actions – what works and what does not?

The Research Topic is directly linked to EUTRO 2018, i.e. the 4th International Symposium on Research and Management of Eutrophication in Coastal Ecosystem, which takes place 18-20 June 2018 in Nyborg, Denmark. We encourage participants in EUTRO 2018 to submit to this Research Topic.
