The Young LOICZ website is targeted to:

- young scientists
- students
- pupils / scholars

We will particularly encourage early stage researchers from PhD student to Post-Doc level to seek affiliation of their projects. LOICZ acknowledges that much of the work contributing to coastal Earth System science is being carried out by young scientists. Therefore LOICZ wants to support these efforts by enhancing their visibility and introduction to scientific peers world wide in the global research community. This network will also be recognized as “Young LOICZ” and its products and information will feed into the global LOICZ synthesis likewise with the larger affiliated projects.

LOICZ aims to launch an official call for affiliation of early stage research early 2009. This will be announced online and in the Newsletter.

We welcome Alice Newton as the new Chair of LOICZ.
