As was mentioned at the conference, EMECS 9 is collaborating with the Estuarine, Coastal and Shelf Science (ECSS) journal to publish a special issue on “Science-Based Management for Results in Coastal Seas.”  Due to travel difficulties posed by Hurricane Irene, there were several colleagues who were not able to make it to the conference last week.  As such, the invitation to participate in the journal will not be exclusive to EMECS 9 participants, but will be open to all who are willing to contribute a relevant, scientific article focused on the theme “Science-Based Management for Results in Coastal Seas.”
