To assess coastal storm risks this paper compares existing hazards, associated risks, coastal management plans, and civil protection schemes from nine European countries. An evaluation made of specific study sites concludes that: (a) the definition of coastal hazard or risk varies between countries, regions and sites with no pan-European agreement;...
The fundamental goal of this proposal is to understand the environmental drivers of specific groups of phytoplankton in a coastal system, the Ria Formosa coastal lagoon (southern Portugal), an aspect recently identified as a key determinant to forecast ecosystem responses to environmental. The Ria Formosa is located in a region classified as very vulnerable to climate change and it suffers multiple anthropogenic impacts. The lagoon is a breeding and feeding ground for fish and birds, and supports a wide range of human activities including tourism, fisheries, and shellfish farming.
