Coastal and Shelf Seas

This special interest group provides a focal point for the UK marine science community to discuss recent multidisciplinary research into coastal ocean and shelf sea processes and to plan future research directions. It encompasses all marine science disciplines (including physics, biogeochemistry, marine biology, sedimentology and geology), from estuaries through to the continental shelf break. We actively encourage contributions from observational marine scientists, numerical modellers, remote sensing scientists, and applied researchers.
