International Symposium on Climate change and human activities:Coastal Consequences and Responses, organized by State Key Laboratory of Estuarine and Coastal Research (SKLEC), will be hold on October 28th to October 31th in East China Normal University (ECNU).
Coastal zone, especially estuaries, has been under great pressure due to human activities from catchments as well as coastal developments. Sea level rise and extreme weather conditions are natural disasters that threaten the vulnerable coastal zone. Understanding about the consequences and responses of coastal systems to the natural and anthropogenic pressure is a great challenge for scientists and policy makers. This symposium aims to provide a platform for scientists from different disciplines to discuss about possible and recognized changes of coastal systems, and potential strategies to adapt to these changes.
