LOICZ INPRINT 2008/2: • LOICZ SSC needs new enthusiast experts – call is open (deadline is 15 September, 2008) • 19th SSCM in Cape Town: towards the LOICZ interim synthesis and new avenues in science • Host institute director F. Colijn, GKSS, is new Associate Member to the LOICZ SSC • In the biogeochemistry context we feature first steps towards a multiannual budget of the Mediterranean. The LOICZ approach, its implications for scenarios and evaluating institutional response are the background • Linking Nutrients, Eutrophication, and Harmful Algalblooms is focus of the new SCOR, CAS, LOICZ WG 132 • ENCORA and SPICOSA, two high profile affiliated projects in the context of coastal management and networking, are featured and their approach, achievements and perspectives discussed • Socio ecological systems assessment sees two important events with LOICZ participation • Governance baseline assessments in Latin America proceed and EcoCostas and LOICZ are pushing the Train of Trainer and certification approaches • Coastal Snapshots: a new series today featuring “Coastal Burma”.
LOICZ INPRINT 2008/1: • Nutrient fluxes, Eutrophication, Algalblooms; LOICZ elaborates on processes, links and advanced modeling of these still challenging links. • The recent US national estuarine eutrophication assessment looks into ecosystem change applying ASSETS and Typology approaches. • Headways are made in the governance baseline assessments with IAI and IHDP supporting, and a certification program for practitioners takes off in Latin America partnering with EcoCostas. • IASC and LOICZ embark on transdisciplinary coastal change assessment in the Arctic –Humans and Environment – what's at stake? • SCOPE touches upon the critical role of an “exploding” bio economy – the link between biofuel and water quality. • BACC – A Regional Climate Change Assessment for the Baltic Sea Basin is published. The assessment is an example for a type of urgently needed reports helping to put global climate change into regional context.
