LOICZ INPRINT 2007/1: Coastal Zones are complex socio-ecological systems, delivery and sustainability of goods and services are dependant on functions and processes which are under increasing anthropogenic and climatic influence. Biogeochemical fluxes are key indicators mirroring land-based activities and potential scales for social response. This newsletter looks into new aspects of biogeochemical assessment and nutrient accounting as a means to ultimately inform decisions relevant for management across the dynamic land - sea boundary. We also feature the recent changes in the IPO team and their implications in the new phase of LOICZ.


LOICZ INPRINT 2006/3: The IPO and SSC wish you all a happy and successful New Year. We thank you for great LOICZ work in 2006 and look forward to even more good collabortation and new and exiting LOICZ Science in 2007.


LOICZ INPRINT 2006/2: LOICZ gains momentum at new location – Cutting edge coastal science was presented during a one day national symposium LOICZ held at the new GKSS host Institute for Coastal Research. The international SSC met in parallel and engaged closely with the German colleagues. Read further about international LOICZ research, new global models and capacity building and our steps towards better public relations and science dissemination. New also from LOICZ – UNEP/GEF: The role of the Coastal Ocean in the disturbed and undisturbed nutrient and carbon cycles – A Management Perspective.


LOICZ INPRINT 2006/1: LOICZ IPO at Institute for Coastal Research, Dynamics and change of beach erosion, accretion and nourishment in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, Key topics identified for implementation of LOICZ future research, News from the LOICZ Regional Nodes, LOICZ at ESSP, November 2006, China, The backbone of LOICZ: affiliated projects and call for research proposal, What’s on the wwweb, Have you seen, Publications and Calendar.
