CP24G:
Transdisciplinary Research and Education in Coastal Systems Posters

Session ID#: 85229

Session Description:
The majority of the people in the world live near the coast, coastal systems provide the most valuable set of ecosystem services per area of any other region on Earth, and all coastal environments affect and are affected by coastal communities. In addition, climate change, shifting demographics, and the global economy are shifting baselines. These complex, dynamic systems require new and innovative approaches for effective research and education efforts.  For this session, we define transdisciplinary with two characteristics: 1) The research approach is problem-based rather than discipline-based, and 2) The research has impacts on society. We welcome presentations on any aspect of coupled natural and human coastal systems that satisfy these criterion. Examples include: fisheries, blue carbon, plastic pollution, sea-level rise, port development, dredge reuse, ecosystem and human health, aquaculture, etc.  Presentations on educational efforts to support and promote transdisciplinary research and training should begin with “TD Education:” if they want to be considered a second (education) abstract submission.
