Littoral 2017 Conference, Liverpool, 5-7 June

Coastal & MarinE-News


We are pleased to announce our three-day international conference and excursions exploring the anthropocene and the littoral, with particular reference to the themes of ‘change, naturalness and people’. The conference will seek to examine how humans and human processes influence the littoral, and how these influences may now be viewed as natural, as much as any other natural processes.

The theme will gather all disciplines to explore current issues of relevance to the coast and will be of interest to a wide spectrum of scientists , including those from the physical sciences, climate change scientists and ecologists, social scientists, engineers, policy makers and advisers and practitioners.

The official language of the conference will be English and translation facilities will not be available.

UPDATE 31st May 2017

The first call for sessions and papers is now closed following a good response. The second and final call for sessions and papers is…

European coastal regions at greatest risk from oil spills identified by new risk index

Coastal & MarinE-News

Source: Science for Environment Policy

European Atlantic countries are, in general, at higher risk of being affected by oil spills than Mediterranean and Baltic countries, with the United Kingdom most affected, according to new research. The study developed a new risk index for analysing the potential vulnerability of coastal regions to oil spills at sea.

Oil spills at sea can be devastating events. Not only does oil pollution harm marine wildlife, it can also affect coastal communities by causing fishing and recreational activities to close. To help marine policymakers, this study has proposed a method to measure and compare the risk to European coastal regions from oil spills at sea.

The method uses computer modelling to simulate the effect of an oil spill at sea along a stretch of European coastline. The modelling considers the distance to the coast from the spill, the size of the spill, the shape and…

SOF Session # 107: Biosensors for healthy oceans 
Date and time: Tuesday 26 July, 12:50 – 14:05 hrs.
Abstract: Growing concerns about the health of the oceans and their capacity to provide resources, goods and services are increasing the demand for monitoring of marine water quality and environmental early warning systems. Real-time in situ monitoring of marine chemical contaminants, including emerging pollutants and biohazards such as algal toxins, is of the utmost importance for the sustainable management and exploitation of the seas and their resources. The ultimate goal is to obtain more effective monitoring of the marine environment and its status in line…
