L'Aber Wrac'h, Brittany (France)
Organized by Europole Mer.
This interdisciplinary conference will bring together scientists with expertise in coastal groundwater studies (e.g., physicists, chemists, geologists, hydrologists) with coastal ecologists and environmental economists. The intention is to discuss the state of knowledge and to design future experiments that will help advance the understanding of hydrological-ecological connectivity in the coastal zone.
1) Physical & geographical effects of coastal groundwater discharge.
2) Biogeochemical effects of coastal groundwater discharge.
3) Linkages of coastal groundwater discharge with phytoplankton community structure, Harmful Algal Blooms and primary productivity.
4) Ecosystem Services and economic implications.
