Aims & Scope

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. 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.
Data reports of mainly local interest are discouraged.

Research areas include:

Numerical modelling of estuarine and coastal marine ecosystems
Species distribution in relation to varying environments
Effects of waste disposal
Groundwater runoff and Chemical processes
Estuarine and fjord circulation patterns
Meteorological and oceanic forcing of semi-enclosed and continental shelf water masses
Sea-surface and sea-bed processes
Estuarine and coastal sedimentary processes and geochemistry
Brackish water and lagoon phenomena
Transitional waters
