Aim & Scope
About the Estuarine & Coastal Sciences Association (ECSA)
The Estuarine & Coastal Sciences Association (ECSA) is an international organization dedicated to the promotion and advancement of multidisciplinary research into all aspects of estuaries and coasts, and the application of science and technology for their sustainable environmental management. ECSA has been involved in the organization of 50 high quality international conferences to date since its creation in 1972, averaging one or more major events each year. Apart from this the association has also organized over 80 local UK and European continental symposia and workshops and has published many proceedings and handbooks.
About Estuarine, Coastal and Shelf Science – the journal
Estuarine, Coastal and Shelf Science is an international multidisciplinary journal devoted to the analysis of saline water phenomena ranging from the outer edge of the continental shelf to the upper limits of the tidal zone and the penetration of seawaters into estuaries. The journal provides a unique forum, unifying the multidisciplinary approaches to the study of the oceanography of estuaries, coastal zones, and continental shelf seas. It features original research papers, review papers and short communications treating such disciplines as zoology, botany, geology, sedimentology, physical oceanography. The journal has an Impact Factor of 2.176, according to the Journal Citation Reports®, published by Thomson Reuters.
The birth of the book series
The ECSA has a long running a successful relationship with Elsevier, so far this has included Elsevier organizing the Estuarine & Coastal Sciences Association (ECSA) Conference, which occurs every other year and the international journal Estuarine Coastal and Shelf Science, which Elsevier publishes in association with the ECSA. The Estuarine and Coastal Sciences series is devoted to the analysis of saline and brackish water phenomena ranging from the outer edge of the continental shelf to the upper limits of the tidal zone. The series provides a unique forum, unifying the multidisciplinary approaches to the study of the oceanography of estuaries, coastal zones, and continental shelf seas. The series Editor is ECSA, led by Steve Mitchell and Mike Elliott. Each volume is edited or authored and includes contributions from worldwide experts in the field.
