GC022:
Comparing Marginal Seas around the World – Coping with Similar Problems in Different Ways?





Session ID#: 24964

Session Description:
The session intends to bring together, for the first time, scientists from marginal seas and their catchment basins from different parts of the world (e.g. Baltic Sea, Black Sea, BoHai/Yellow Sea, Chesapeake Bay, Great Lakes, Gulf of Mexico, Mediterranean Sea, the North Sea, South-China-Sea etc.) to discuss similarities in the physical, biogeochemical, ecological and socio-economic environment and how to cope with long-term changes in environmental conditions in response to climate change and the various dimensions of human use, e.g. changes in atmospheric, hydrologic and oceanographic conditions (incl. sea-level and surges), eutrophication, hypoxia, pollution and land-use as well as modeling of potential future changes. Specifically, it is intended to compare the respective human impacts and management structures in the respective regions and learn from experiences and case studies. Furthermore, the establishment of a network of scientists working on similar problems in different parts of the world would be a desired byproduct.
