Impending climate change and increased pressure from human activities such as extraction of minerals, petroleum development, pollution, terrestrial runoff, fisheries, shipping and renewable energy development are expected to have serious impacts on the structure and functioning of the Earth’s marine ecosystems. Analyzing these effects alone or cumulatively in the medium-term future (0-50 years) is of paramount importance to provide a solid scientific basis for management decisions affecting the majority of humanity that inhabits or is dependent on the oceans and coastal areas.

The current Research Topic aims to explore future scenarios for our oceans and coastal areas. Contributions exploring multiple pressures or multiple aspects of the same stressor are encouraged. Contributions exploring case studies comparing various ecosystems are especially sought after to illuminate responses and trends that are common across ecosystems and distinguish from those that are specific for each ecosystem.

Quantitative and qualitative modelling studies that explore future scenarios have been shown to be particularly useful, and further developments of such models, notably those including the human dimension (e.g. economic and social issues), are encouraged.

We welcome original manuscripts suitable as research articles, reviews, mini-reviews or policy and practice reviews according to Frontiers’ categories for articles (https://www.frontiersin.org/journals/marine-science#article-types).


Keywords: Trade-off, Ecosystem-based management, Multiple stressors, Future scenarios


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
